Bright, supple and open-textured, offering disarmingly pure currant and blackberry flavors that linger elegantly on the extra-long finish. Not a blockbuster; it's just yummy and refined. Tannins aren't intrusive, making it tempting to drink already. Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Oregon in USA. 1999 Beaux Freres Pinot Noir 750ml

...Reticent nose opened to show red fruits, scotch, vanilla and rose petal. Fat, silky and lush in the mouth, with burnished oak notes and complex flavors of redcurrant, strawberry and orange peel...Tannins are serious but fine. Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Winemaker's Notes:

A vintage hailed by wine pundits as a great one for Oregon Pinot Noir. It was a year of relatively high yields (even for us) and a spectacular growing year followed by very good harvest conditions. Our biggest crop of the 1990’s produced a wine stylistically reminiscent of Burgundy. The color is medium to dark ruby, in the mouth it is crisp acidity (all natural) and loads of kirsch liqueur, spice box, roasted herbs and cedar in an expressive bouquet. The wine is medium-bodied with freshness, impressive elegance and finesse. This is by no means a blockbuster, super-concentrated style of Pinot Noir but one of lace and grace. The high natural acidity has ensured a certain freshness and will guarantee longevity. In many ways we are hoping that its aromatics may turn out to be as profound as the 1993 but it is too early to tell.
