Willamette Valley Vineyards Pinot Noir 2008
Medium ruby color; deep earthy, cherry aromas with some herbal notes; ripe, cherry flavors with complex earthy and herbal notes; silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Ripe and rich Pinot with nice forward flavors. Great with grilled pork or chicken.
A perfumed, elegant and exuberantly spicy nose of mostly diverse red berry fruit aromas merges seamlessly into cook, pure, complex and beautifully detailed medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent length on the balanced and vibrant finish. This is lovely, especially for a so-called entry level pinot.
Dark fruited and focused, this densely packed red leads with aromas of spiced plum and black cherry. The deep plummy flavors finish with a hint of mint. For pasta with wild mushrooms.
