The fruit for the 2007 O'Reilly's Pinot Noir was sourced from several small vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley. The fruit is farmed identically to the Owen Roe single vineyard offerings and many blocks end up in the O'Reilly's blend simply because they do not fit into the style of Owen Roe. As a result, the O'Reilly's is an incredible bargain, sometimes at twice the price.
The 2007 O'Reilly's Pinot Noir is a lighter, more elegant vintage with crisp, clean acidity and bright red fruits. Overall, the 2007 O'Reilly's Pinot Noir truly showcases the cooler vintage with lower alcohol and mineral-laden aromatics and flavors, while maintaining the classic Oregon Pinot Noir profile with its cherry cola and coffee characteristics.
