    Willamette Valley Pinot Noir comes closer to French Burgundy than any other new-world Pinot and this is no exception. Not as fruit-forward as California Pinots and with more acidity this is bright and elegant. It has a bit of tannin and will want five years or so to hit it's marks (until 2019 or so). The color is light-to-medium ruby with a hint of "a robe" (iridescence). Racy and elegant medium sized nose with notes of strawberry, pomegranate, cherry, freesia...not notably oaky. The stout Turley-style bottle is complemented by a longish, top-quality natural cork; this stuff will hold for decades if you want. This Burgundian style is not for everyone But I'm laying a few down.
