Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Reserve 2004
Behind every bottle of Ponzi Pinot Noir is nearly four decades of winemaking discovery and innovation in the Willamette Valley. The trademark Ponzi style is based on our intimate vineyard knowledge; our gentle, attentive processes; and the artistry of barrel selection as we create the most stunning blends.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Flat, not good. Must have been a bad bottle because this was very good when I tasted it at the winery.
My husband and I found this wine totally by accident on a trip to Oregon wine country in 2007. It was amazing! We were able to score four bottles at a little wine tasting venue in the airport and they brought it through security for us. Holding it still but will probably open this weekend! :-)
External Reviews for Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Reserve
Lithe and juicy, with pretty blackberry, boysenberry and plum flavors that dance over ultrafine tannins. Finishes with real finesse. Drink now through 2012.
Complex scents suggests water, dried cherry, raspberry and baking chocolate. In the mouth, itrsquo;s tight, compact and stylish. I love the details, the hints of earth and bark, and the rich vein of berry. The barrel flavors are well integrated and matched the firm tannins.
