2009 Duck Pond Pinot Noir Willamette Valley OR 13.5% $22

This is earthy and a bit wild on the nose, with a musky animal spice note. Lots of floral and medicinal herb notes add complexity over an astringent base of lingonberry and raspberry fruit. Soft and seductive on entry with a seamless feel. There’s plenty of red cherry fruit accented with a low streak of vanilla and some incipient wood and herb spice notes that try to bust out on the back end. The finish gains some nice mineral spice and has a warm cherry pie filling sweetness and spice that extends through the citrus/raspberry finale. Lovely wine. Almost seems simple, but has the potential to be a complete, if small scaled wine. 90pts
