Very much Burgundian in style which reflects the wineries owners. Needed time to open up. Initial taste had some tang or zest to it. Not sure if I have the right description here. However, when it did open up it had a very elegant style. It is very much Oregon with some French style. Floral with red fruit on the nose. Red cherry with a big of earthiness in the taste.

This beautifully structured New World Pinot Noir with obvious French panache looks all Cotes de Nuits in the glass; then comes the strawberry-biscuit on the nose. The entry brings more strawberry and cherry preserve with silky tannins that suggest up to 4 more years of possible bottle aging - though the wine is wonderful to the tongue now. Only the most reputable properties in Burgundy are going to surpass this experience so spend your 40-50 dollars with a clear conscience. Well done.

This wine has improved with age ... the earthiness really shows through. Nose had earth, moss, a bit of tar and hints of red fruit. Smooth wine with good mouth feel. Medium finish with earthy cherry flavors.

On the heavier side of Pinot, strong cherry fruit but with a hearty base to it.

a classic go-to willamette pinot; relatively easy to find and always delicious.

cinnamon, touch of cloves, fruity, touch of wood; chosen to stand up to southwestern fare

Opened this for Thanksgiving and glad we did. Smelled like rain-soaked Oregon loam. Spicy cherry flavor lingered in the mouth long after swallowed. I'm sure it will age well.

The Drouhin Family, famous for their Burgundies, is producing delicious wines domestically. Stylish, supple, polished and generous, with spicy, mineral-scented cherry and raspberry flavors. Balanced, with lively acidity, lingering on the firm finish

Winemaker's Notes:

I find the 2006 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley very easy to love. It is pretty and charming and graceful, like the 2004, but with a slightly more masculine character. On the nose, the wine is full of bright cherry and intense small red berry notes, with a hint of spice. The mouth feel is lush and round, and very balanced, as is the elegant, long finish. It is a wine to enjoy now, or any time over the next 6-12 years.
