The 2008 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has aromas of earth, grape stems, dark berries and notes of mushrooms. The flavors show a mix of mostly dark berries and dark cherries, earthiness, and spiciness followed by Graham cracker- barrel toast. The crisp acidity carries the rich flavors to a long earthy aftertaste with cherries, dried red berries and spices. The mouthfeel is semi sweet, with noticeable tannins and spice from the grape stems. The finish is long with notes of earthy mushrooms, red and dark fruit, oak spices and graham cracker oak toast. The texture is rich and mouth filling. The stem tannins add rich structure and are present from beginning to end, without detracting from the wine flavors. This wine will become creamier with a little more cellaring. This wine can be enjoyed now with or without decanting, and will benefit from more bottle age.
The 2008 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley. Medium ruby-colored, it exhibits an expressive nose of rose petal, spice box, cherry, and raspberry. Easygoing on the palate while deftly concealing some ripe tannin, this outstanding value will provide pleasure over the next 6-8 years.
