Nice deep red fruit and black berry infused with spice. Good tannin and great, toasty oak on the back palate. It's a bigger, heavier style and very nicely structured. Really enjoyed it! - Tasted at winery 8/17/10

At 14.99 you can't go to wrong with this wine. As noted hints of berries , orange and caramel. Good on the palette with a good acidic balance and smooth finish. Good to have for informal gatherings or just for that weekend alone.

Frankly, I wasn't that impressed. Lots of dry and bright cherry with some dark, annoying tannic notes and not a lot of depth. A surprise considering the overall quality of the '08 vintage. A good value for the price but not a memorable Pinot.

Black cherry aromas, underscored by sweet mandarin orange, greet the nose as warm, clove-laced vanilla wafts gently among subtle hints of anise and caramel. The wine opens on the palate with more hints of sweet black cherry, which flows seamlessly into a supple silkiness.

Winemaker's Notes:

Luminous like a sparkling gem, the ‘08 vintage of Erath’s Oregon Pinot Noir is a beautiful one. Bright cherry and juicy red plum aromas are lifted by a hint of exotic, zesty spice. The sweet entry leads to mouth-filling cherry pie, red currant and vanilla-coffee flavors that extend into a subtle smokiness and a long, luxurious finish.

Tasting Notes:

This very highly rated wine has vivid aromas of spiced red plum and orange blossom. Its rich, full flavors include chocolate, caramel, and red fruit, with hints of earthy undertones. This richness combines with a balanced acidity to produce a spicy, long finish.
