User Reviews for Methven Family Vineyards Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Reserve

Winemaker's Notes:

A barrel selection from the Elton, Durant and Skinner Vineyards in the Eola Hills, Dundee Hills and Chehalem Mountains respectively, the 2004 Reserve Pinot Noir was blended from the most opulent and impressive new French Oak Barrels 14 months after harvest. These old-vine vineyards have been well-known amongst winemaking pioneers in Oregon since the late 70s and early 80s for their quality and unique terroirs. At only 1.5 tons per acre in each vineyard (and less than 0.75 tons per acre in Skinner!) we were able to showcase how attractive Oregon Pinot Noir can be. This wine is a blockbuster with smoky rich aromas of blackberry pie, barrel char, forest floor and sweet, intense oak spices. Young now, the sweet palate is high-toned with red and black fruits intertwined in a mouthwatering and juicy red raspberry and cherry silky texture, echoing the smoky and pungent aromas in the mouth with saddle leather and pipe tobacco. The finish is long and ripely tannic yet smooth and decadent.
