He says, "Pretty frickin good! The 06 Willamette Valley Pinot is translucent ruby red in color with a concentrated black cherry nose that has a lively touch of rhubarb pie and a spice rack that includes black pepper and cinnamon. It is very rich in the mouth yet has a tangy, jazzy, cherry fruit, with back pepper and hits of blueberry in the finish. The tangy mouth leads to a creamy texture when sampled with rich foods; even anchovies!" -Rollin Soles
She says, "The color is a lovely dark red garnet. At first there is a hint of rose petals in the nose, spice, cinnamon, a bit of cobblestone earthiness. There are nice full dark berry flavors in the front of the mouth with a red spicy center, and a long creamy finish. I love the wonderfully balanced acids and tannin in this wine and can't wait to drink it with a variety of foods. In the mouth I get deep black cherry, cinnamon and hints of vanilla with a drop of rich earthiness to round it off. This wine has an edginess to it that says "this is special" which is partly because 06 vintage was spectacular in general." -Corby Soles
rich, round and velvety, a bigger style for Oregon Pinot's but i like it!
