Winemaker's Notes

Chai tea, rose and black currant aromas lead to a mouth of classic Pinot Noir flavors; spiced cherries, coffee, chocolate and grenadine. The finish is firm and bright with good length.

Critical Acclaim

"On the lighter side, with floral and roasted beet aromas wafting through the cherry and red berry flavors, persisting nicely on the elegant finish. Drink now through 2013."
90 Points

"The 2006 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is medium ruby-colored with an expressive perfume of spice box, earth notes, cherry, and raspberry. Friendly and easy-going, it also has good concentration and depth leading to a lengthy, fruit-filled close. Drink it over the next eight years.

Ponzi Vineyards remains a reference point for American Pinot Noir with winemaker Luisa Ponzi at the top of her game."

Oregon's Pinot Noirs are great...and this one is no exception. And this one in particular makes me proud to be in the Willamette Valley. Swirl it in your glass for a wonderfully full aroma, bring it into the mouth for a great spicy flavor with berry-cherry back-up. This finishes long and bright.
