Winemaker's Notes:

Ve´ronique's Tasting Notes:  The 2004 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is quintessential
Pinot to me:  beautiful, soft, feminine, and obviously pleasurable.  The color is classic
ruby red, and the wine has the medium body I look for.  On the nose, the ‘04 is all
cherries and crushed berries.  On the palate, the wine is luscious and concentrated,
leading to a long finish.  I wouldn't hesitate to drink the wine now, but I would be very
happy to save several bottles to enjoy over the next 10+ years.
