The 2006 A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir is blended from wines made
from at least sixteen different vineyards representing all of the
Oregon AVAs that grow Pinot Noir. A to Z takes great care over many
months in crafting one cuvee each vintage, a complex blend that
embodies the essence of Oregon Pinot Noir.
Clear and vibrant, the initial aromas of this wine are of raspberries,
blueberries, baking spices and Bing cherries but evolve to the more
complex aromas of clean earth, minerals, smoke, red currants and
flint. The mouth fulfills the expectations promised by the aromatics
and has a rich texture, good acidity and a strong structure. The
2006 A to Z Pinot Noir shows great poise, concentrated depth and
purity within a lacy framework. Rich, classically proportioned and
built for mid-term aging.
