Oregon pinot - - cherry, earth and nice minerality. Some where between 2d and 3d this wine intrigues you and then takes it back to basics. The bright acidity dances with the fruit whisking it away with every sip.
Greetings from the glass aroused interest, with all the expectation and hope for a truly memorable bottle of wine. Dining partner suggested it could use more time,I agreed and quickly the alcohol burn evaporated...it settled down into many lovely sips, similar to a very good burgundy. 90 Dollars in a restuarant, so , of course, you want to be pleased.Since the dinner was a gift for a friend, I did not labor the point.To anybody. It is a lovely Pinot Noir. I would buy a few bottlesif I knew where I could find them.
External Reviews for Hamacher Pinot Noir Oregon
Rosy, cherry blossom scents rise above the sweet red cherry aromas of this wine. A dark oak component holds it firmly in place at the moment - with a long life ahead. Hamacher pinot typically rewards patient cellaring.
The black fruit and fresh herb-scented 2002 Pinot Noir builds on the palate to reveal loads of black cherries and blackberries ensconced in considerable quantities of tannin. This wine has impressive depth, concentration, and power, most likely enough to sustain its significant structure. Projected maturity: 2008ndash;2015.
Lithe and elegant, a beautifully crafted red that has a welcome tang of fresh earth and lets its currants, blackberry and cherry flavors glide smoothly through the long, polished finish. Drink now through 2010.
Fresh, forward scents of strawberry, berry and cherry jam are nicely played against flavors of chocolate, vanilla bean and even a hint of tea. This is sophisticated, artful winemaking, showing a skillful hand at the tiller. Delicious for near-term enjoyment.
A real attention-grabber. A wash of ripe plum, dried prune, currant and dusky spice flavors weaves a layer of balsamic vinegar through the long, complex finish. Not for all tastes, but itrsquo;s a keeper. Drink now through 2012.
One of the exceptionally rare outstanding reds from its vintage, the 2001 Pinot Noir displays cedar-tinged black cherry aromas. This medium-bodied, ample wine sports a lovely satiny texture, loads of spice-laden blackberries, dark cherries, and hints of blueberries. It is harmonious, lush, and has a long, fruit-packed finish. While it may age well, my inclination is to suggest drinking it over the next 3 years as experience has taught me to fear notes of cedar in young Pinots.
