Apolloni Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2008

Member Review by RPerro:

Compared to the 2 bottles of 2005 Pinot Noir I've had from this producer, very disappointing. Could be the youth of this wine showing, but the flavors were lacking across the board. Nice nose of raspberry, cherry and tobacco, but I didn't get a whole lot on my palate.

Popped and poured. This started out somewhat bitter. I knew it would open up a bit with some air, and it certainly did! After an hour, the wine was open and aromas and flavors of raspberry, pepper and earth really came through. Finish is long and peppery, with some nicely integrated heat. I've had this Pinot before at a dinner party, and was pleasantly surprised. It did not let me down this time either. My date said the same. Outstanding - 91 points.
