Pinot Noir is the name of the game at Benton Lane, the Oregon-based winery established by noted Californian producer Steve Girard. Notes of undergrowth provide a nice earthy counterpoint to the bright strawberry fruit.

Very deep and complex aromas of Bing cherries, graham cracker pie crust, mushrooms and blackberries just leap from the glass. In the mouth blueberries, red raspberries and baked strawberries are ripe and viscous. This is a wine of tremendous depth and nuance.
