Snooth.comThis is full of forest floor, stem, mushroom and light cherry fruit paired with faint baking spice. It’s a lovely, fresh, and complex nose. In the mouth, this has a lovely richness, feeling absolutely round and almost lush on the palate. The flavors of fresh berry fruit are wonderful and paired with great inner-mouth perfumes of mushroom, beetroot, sage, and cherry candy. There is a really nice structural tension in the mouth as well, to the point that you don’t even notice the acidity or the tannins until you look for them. There’s a black cherry medicinal tone on the backend, and the succulent tannins add a hint of refreshing astringency and some stemmy tones that lead to a long, layered, fruit-driven and spice-toned finish. Wonderful Pinot, richly flavored with a lovely texture. 92pts Read more: http://www.snooth.com/articles/wine-reviews/oregons-pinots/2/#ixzz0zoNO5aNq
Northwest Palate MagazineMeaty aromas of plump berry fruit are combined with elegantly spicy notes of tea and gentle barrel spice on the nose. In the mouth, complex flavors of cherries, violets, spices, and toast are concentrated and satisfying, without succumbing to cloying density as do so many other 2006 Pinots. And at $29, this wine is well-priced.
BackgroundThroughout the entire state, a warm and dry growing season with little precipitation and no disease pressure resulted in a harvest with a rare combination of robust yields and great quality. This Pinot Noir was hand picked at optimum ripeness and crafted in the traditional manner, spending 11 months in French oak.
Wine EnthusiastThe aromas that greet you from the glass bring flowers, cherries, hints of cured meat and more. The wine is already drinking nicely, with an elegant mix of pie cherries and fruit pastry flavors. P.G. (6/1/2010) - 88
Wine SpectatorLight and silky, with fragrant raspberry, red cherry, spice and a hint of mint as the finish sails easily. Drink now through 2013
