This pinot leads with an exotic mélange of stem spices -- caraway, anise, licorice -- adorning fresh, bright cherry flavors. There's beautiful tension between the bright fruit and savory elements, the finish focused and lifted at once, its lasting concentration a match for the complex flavors of fennel-roasted pork. Best Buy.

Bright medium red. Smoky redcurrant and cherry aromas are complicated by dried rose and spicecake. Deeper dark berry flavors are firmed by silky tannins and become sweeter with air. Shows very good power on the focused dark berry-flavored finish. This is the best version of this bottling I can recall. Winemaker Steve Doerner told me that he used 50% whole clusters across the board in 2008.


Winemaker's Notes:

This Pinot Noir is a medium garnet color. On the nose it is showing cola berry, oolong tea and wild berry aromas. It has the 'signature' Mt. Jefferson liveliness on the palate with bright, juicy red cherry flavors that echo on the finish. There are more complex flavors of earth and spice evident on the palate but they need a little time to show through more completely. This Pinot Noir will develop nicely in the short to medium term.
