    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 McCrone shows the typicity of the marine based soils of the Willamette Valley region. Bramble fruits in the nose, particularly black raspberry, and leather, anise, fresh turned earth and blueberry on the palate. 2008 as a vintage has excellent natural acidity and structure.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Silky, supple and distinctive for the deep mineral flavors that weave through dark berry, cherry and currant fruit, sailing easily into a cloud of fine tannins on the long, expressive finish.

    The 2008 Pinot Noir McCrone Vineyard comes from a densely spaced site planted in 1992. It offers up fragrant black fruit aromas verging into blueberry and plum. Mouth-coating on the palate with plenty of structure and intense flavors, it has outstanding volume, focus, and length. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it through 2023.

    Still quite young, but showing real depth and layering, the McCrone vineyard designate offers pomegranate and raspberry fruit, dusted with baking spices, and finished with a tasty vein of mocha. This is a wine to enjoy in the full bloom of its youth.

    Vivid red. An exotically perfumed bouquet offers scents of cherry, redcurrant, violet and medicinal orange bitters. Succulent red fruit flavors show a pleasantly brisk quality and gain depth and weight with air. The tannins come on late, as do bitter herb and spice notes that linger on the impressively long finish. Here's another wine that really deserves some patience. Rating: 91+
