Winemaker's Notes:

Everything that I love about the 07 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is accentuated in the 07 Laurène; even more complexity, more fruit, and more loveliness. The trademark of the vintage for us is its precision, the purity of flavor, clearly layered across the palate. The texture is very fine, and the flavors are a burst of fresh red fruits, in contrast to the darker fruits of recent vintages. As I hope for, the finish is very long, and I expect that we can all enjoy the 2007 Laurène for at least 10 years or more!
