This is about the best bang for the buck you can get in a Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.... and 2008 has proved to be an incredible vintage so far!!
Also thought this was a great bargin a Willamette Valley Pinot Noir well under $15. Was very pleased paired well with a roasted turkey, our sons even enjoyed it they are use to us drinking big in your face cabs and the like and enjoyed the easy drinkability and smooth finish of this pick will go back for a few more.
Wine was made from grapes harvested in early October 2008 but tastes like early harvest. May improve with time in the cellar. Well conceived, just a bit tart and simple.
