This wine is a hedonist's dream, viscous and silky smooth. Surprisingly savory aromatics of leather and black tea quickly give way to sweeter sensations of fresh baked spice cake and cola. The 2009 is a cornucopia of mixed berries with notes of sweet black cherry and cassis. Luscious fruit, broad tannins, beautifully integrated oak and sensational acidity coalesce to create this balanced and enjoyable wine. Oregon Pinot noir is rarely enjoyed so young, so take this opportunity to enjoy it now or cellar 4-7 years.
"Bright red. High-pitched aromas of strawberry and raspberry, with complicating notes of dried rose and Asian spices. Lively and precise on the palate, with gently sweet red fruit flavors and a touch of rose pastille. The floral and spice notes repeat on the gripping, persistent finish."
International Wine Cellar
"Leading with scents of consomme and dried chocolate, the flavors of this savory red are marked by a fine mineral tang. It needs time to settle before serving with roast salmon.
