Pinot Noir from Oregon
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
"The 2007 Pinot Noir Hyland Vineyard comes from a parcel planted in 1970 with the Coury clone, a 'suitcase' clone which is rarely seen today. According to Bergstrom, this vineyard yields wine which is 'always bigger, darker, and more structured.' True to form, this dark ruby-colored wine offers up an aromatic array of balsam wood, violets, black cherry, and black raspberry. Mouth-filling on the palate and more structured than the preceding wines, it has layers of savory fruit, excellent depth, lively acidity, and a lengthy finish."
The Wine Advocate
"Vivid red. Pungent cherry and black raspberry aromas are complicated by smoky minerals, anise and dried rose. Deep, finely etched cherry and black raspberry flavors on the palate, with slow-mounting spiciness. The finish features bitter cherry and candied anise qualities and lingers with impressive sappiness and precision."
