2022 Kelley Fox Pinot Noir Durant Vineyard Willamette Valley

The Durant 2022 is medium-dark, youthful, rich ruby-red with beautiful light and transparency. It has the classic Dundee Hills nose of perfectly sun-ripe Oregon strawberries and subtle spices along with soft minerals. The mouth is the same, with a delicious sappiness and luxe texture without the heaviness. The structure is there in a way that is more pixelated than linear at the time of this tasting. Long finish. The Durant has the energy of full spring just into early summer: full of life. There should be a tarot card with a picture of this late spring queen all surrounded by Oregon strawberries and bluebird skies with puffy clouds and the feeling of building abundance.
