Cardwell Hill Cellars Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Rosé 2007

Member Review by Alexr79:

Another winner from Cardwell Hill. The 2007 doesn't pack as much of a fruit punch as the 2006, but make no mistake, this is full bodied Pinot Noir. This would pair well with salmon but I prefer it with a nice ribeye steak. Just opening the bottle fills the air with scents with dark berries and Oregon Wine Country air. On the palate there are bright cherries, dark blackberries, craisins, with subtle hints of coffee, tobacco, and toast. This wine truly exhibits terroir as it makes one imagine he is in the middle of a vineyard in the Willamette Valley

An excellent wine from a challenging Oregon vintage. Fortunately, due to Cardwell Hill's specific location within Oregon, they were mostly unaffected by the late season rains. The grapes also benefited from hang time that extended into October. This vintage is a bit more subtle and has more finesse than the 2006. It is still on the fuller side of pinot noir and shows cherries, stawberries, raspberries, blackberries, some dark jam, and just enough spice and oak to make one feel happy. I can't wait until the reserve comes out. Dan Chapel told me, at a wine tasting in Minneapolis, that the 2007 Pinot Noir Reserve is his best effort yet

A great pinot for the price - I found this gem at Costco for $16! - a wonderful nose of floral and earth, reminds me of a French burgundy more than any other US pinot I have had. Certainly this wine says "Terroir". Medium bodied with layers of character of multiple berries, tobbaco, toast, spice, and mineral earth. I will buy more and see how it ages. This Pinot kicks the arse out of the usual California efforts, and has me thinking of moving to Oregon with my surf board and catching another big one.

Earthy bodied pinot noir with hints of cherry, tabacco, and spice. A good pinot for grilling your beef of choice on a chilly day.
