The 2017 ‘Lachini Family Estate’ Pinot Noir by Lachini is a terrific effort form this exciting vintage in the Willamette Valley. Earthy tones grip you immediately with white truffle shavings that combine with the lovely dark fruit aromatic profile. The palate reveals wonderful terroir driven characteristics, with peat moss, and forest floor accents that line the bright red and dark fruits. The citrus component at the back end wonderfully complements this fantastic wine. While outstanding in its youth, this should also evolve well for at least another decade.
