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.
Alcohol By Volume: 14.1%
Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
The 2009 de Lancellotti Vineyard Pinot Noir is dark ruby red in color and offers up a potpourri nose of sweet baking spices, red currant, cherry and savory herbs. The intense mouth-feel is also very perfumed and is dominated by red raspberry, cherry and plum flavors and is framed by the vineyard's trademark mouthwatering acidity and suave and silky ripe tannins. This wine is very pretty in nature but dense and brooding at the same time which makes de Lancellotti Vineyard a pleasure to drink young or age for 10 years. Drink 2012-2022.
"A concentrated core of pure, sweet raspberry and cherry fruit is showcased in a wine of remarkable penetration and length. The fruit, from a biodynamic estate vineyard, is perfumed and open, making this immediately accessible and supremely enjoyable. And yet cellaring will surely reward those with the patience and discipline to lay it down for up to a decade. Cellar Selection."
"Vivid ruby. Intensely perfumed nose offers black raspberry, cherry compote and candied licorice. Vanilla and cola nuances add an exotic quality to sappy red and dark berry flavors, with tangy acidity providing lift. Closes on a bright, spicy note, with lingering sweetness and excellent tenacity."

Beyond the main AVAs of Oregon, like Willamette Valley, Rogue and Umpqua, smaller regions are gaining ground. Some you may see on the label include:
