Ddo Pinot Noir Wv 375 2009
90 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Bright red. High-pitched red berry and spice aromas are complicated by notes of candied rose, herbs and white pepper. Suave, silky and precise, offering sweet strawberry and raspberry flavors and a deeper note of bitter cherry. Nicely balanced and pure, with very good finishing clarity and length. There's something almost Chambolle-like here. (Jul/Aug 2011)
Pale garnet color. Raspberry, strawberry, and violets on the nose, as well as some earthy and black pepper notes. Mid-plus acidity, mid-minus tannins, and high alcohol (14.1% abv). On the palate there is some sweeter notes (red cherry), probably in part due to the relatively high alcohol. Overall this is a very well balanced and pleasant, though not overly complex, wine. Will benefit from some more bottle-aging.
Huge flavor; tannic. Opens nicely.
External Reviews for Ddo Pinot Noir Wv 375
Deep and vibrant, with brilliant color and excellent clarity. Aromatically, the wine is quite open, even opulent 09 a mix of velvety rose petals, violets and spices. On the palate, the texture is lush and mouth-coating, but well-balanced. Together, they provide definition and intensity, followed by refined, silky tannins. The finish is quite long, with beautiful cherry notes.
Firm in texture, with a grip of tannins around generous red berry, tobacco and floral flavors, which persist into the lively, deftly balanced finish. Drink now through 2017. -HS Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Oregon in USA. 2009 Drouhin, Domaine Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 750ml
