A To Z 2006
Clear and vibrant, this wine has a beautiful dark color and aromas of mixed berries, earth, smoke, violets, Asian spices and minerals. In the mouth, the wine mirrors the aromatics with a succulent texture and good acidity. As the finish unfolds, the individual characteristics of the wine unify and augment one another. Beautifully balanced between richness and power, the wine possesses amazing depth and purity. Classically proportioned while being built with long term potential, the concentrated 2005 A to Z Pinot Noir will be perhaps the longest lived wine we have made. Winery
One of the more subtle pinots I've sampled. It's dry and has a finish that very quickly fades away without leaving much flavor. Yeah, I'm liking this.
Based on the plaudits it's received, this is astonishingly overrated. My wife and I are burghounds trying with great energy to find Willamette proxies and everything I've tried over the years among Oregonian pinots bests this one. Perhaps my palette is hopelessly unattuned, but we won't be trying this again.
This is a solid Oregon Pinot Nior, it shows that Oregon can produce well made Pinot, however it isn't the best I have had from there. The body is full and the nose has nice aromas, very fruity. I would keep a few around for people who like Pinot Noir.
It has a bright fruitful taste with a flat ending. Colors are clear and crisp. Not sure I would buy this again.
This is my everyday pinot. Very easy to drink, and a reasonable price.
Love this wine. A good example of the great year that Oregon had.
Had a bottle with dinner last night. Wanted something to go with my pork and husband's arctic char. Not to heavy, not much flavor, but a nice, subtle pinot, which is what we wanted. We paid $34 so not too high of a markup.
