Oregon pinot - - cherry, earth and nice minerality. Some where between 2d and 3d this wine intrigues you and then takes it back to basics. The bright acidity dances with the fruit whisking it away with every sip.

Greetings from the glass aroused interest, with all the expectation and hope for a truly memorable bottle of wine. Dining partner suggested it could use more time,I agreed and quickly the alcohol burn evaporated...it settled down into many lovely sips, similar to a very good burgundy. 90 Dollars in a restuarant, so , of course, you want to be pleased.Since the dinner was a gift for a friend, I did not labor the point.To anybody. It is a lovely Pinot Noir. I would buy a few bottlesif I knew where I could find them.

Fresh, forward scents of strawberry, berry and cherry jam are nicely played against flavors of chocolate, vanilla bean and even a hint of tea. This is sophisticated, artful winemaking, showing a skillful hand at the tiller. Delicious for near-term enjoyment.

My mouth watered as I pulled in the superb aromas of the 2003 Pinot Noir. A hedonistrsquo;s delight, it displays candied cherries, vanilla beans, hints of smoked bacon, ripe black plums, and Asian spices. This wine has unbridled power, massive concentration, sublimely sweet fruit, and awesome richness. Dominated by black cherries and black raspberries, it slathers across the palate in viscous waves, then lingers for 45 seconds or more in the finish. If this decadent wine gains in complexity with time it will be mind-boggling! Projected maturity: 2007ndash;2015.

Irsquo;ve tasted this wine five times over the past two years and without a doubt, this formerly tannic and introverted wine has bloomed into an ultra-fragrant, silky and deep Pinot Noir. The nose is open with an expressive perfume of blackberries. Seductive aromas are backed up with a silky, caressing texture that coats the palate with raspberry liqueur, plum skin, minerality (slate) and fresh juicy cherries. Beautifully pure, unfiltered fruit provides extraordinary freshness of flavor while the density of the wine extends the finish for a full minute. I have served this wine on two separate occasions over the past month to a dozen or so guests. Without any input from me, my guests unanimously chose Hamacher rsquo;02 as the star of the evening. Drink now or hold for another 3ndash;5 years.

Rosy, cherry blossom scents rise above the sweet red cherry aromas of this wine. A dark oak component holds it firmly in place at the moment mdash; with a long life ahead. Hamacher pinot typically rewards patient cellaring.

One of the exceptionally rare outstanding reds from its vintage, the 2001 Pinot Noir displays cedar-tinged black cherry aromas. This medium-bodied, ample wine sports a lovely satiny texture, loads of spice-laden blackberries, dark cherries, and hints of blueberries. It is harmonious, lush, and has a long, fruit-packed finish. While it may age well, my inclination is to suggest drinking it over the next 3 years as experience has taught me to fear notes of cedar in young Pinots.

Lithe and elegant, a beautifully crafted red that has a welcome tang of fresh earth and lets its currants, blackberry and cherry flavors glide smoothly through the long, polished finish. Drink now through 2010.

A real attention-grabber. A wash of ripe plum, dried prune, currant and dusky spice flavors weaves a layer of balsamic vinegar through the long, complex finish. Not for all tastes, but itrsquo;s a keeper. Drink now through 2012.

Winemaker's Notes:

This wonderful Pinot is fresh and fruit-forward yet broad, complex and layered. As the "younger brother" to the Hamacher Pinot, it's perfectly priced to make a memorable weeknight dinner!
