2015 Broadley "Marcile Lorraine" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir (Previously $50)

SKU #1415651 94 points Vinous

 Shimmering red. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of raspberry liqueur, cherry, incense and exotic spices. Silky and expansive in the mouth, offering intense red fruit, floral pastille, star anise and vanilla flavors that pick up a smoky nuance as the wine opens up. Finishes on a spicy note, delivering outstanding, floral- and mineral-tinged persistence. This Pinot's blend of depth and finesse is quite something. (JR)  (6/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Forward and fruit-driven, the flavors here touch on strawberry, cherry and tangy tangerine. It's a juicy ripe delicious bottle, balanced and ready for near-term drinking. Enjoy this excellent wine from now on into the early 2020s, when it should be at its best. (PG)  (3/2019)

This single-vineyard wine possesses the greatest amount of high-toned fruits such as raspberries and strawberries. Red fruits abound here. True to its Willamette Valley roots, it still has that lovely touch of wood spice and forest floor. But the persistence on the palate drives the main theme of creamy red fruit compote. The wine just glides over the tongue leaving a long delicious finish of fresh berries with a hint of red and green apples. This is probably the most appropriate selection in terms of short-term drinking. It’s just too delicious to hold on to.
