Bells Up Winery, Chehalem Mountains (Willamette Valley, Oregon) Pinot Noir “Maestro” Estate Reserve 2021

($56):  The delicate, 13.3 percent stated alcohol, Maestro, named to honor John Williams, combines the pure, red fruit of the winery’s Titan bottling with a mild touch of minerals seen in the Candide offering.  It displays the same purity and verve as the other Bells Up Pinot Noirs.  Like Candide, it takes time to open to reveal its considerable charm, so you might want to decant this young wine.
