Rex Hill Pinot Noir ' Willamette 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 REX HILL Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a classic example of Oregon Pinot Noir from a vintage that gave us intense fruit and intense flavors. Initial perfumed aromatics redolent of violets and roses, black currants, blueberries, black raspberries and wild strawberries are joined by suggestions of tobacco leaf, clean earth, dried fruit, smoke and spice as the wine opens. Some whole-cluster fermentation contributes dark fruit, tea and savory aromatic characteristics. The attack is rich with beautifully ripe tannins and flavors of red fruits and the blue fruits which are a hallmark of the vintage. The lithe mid-palate finds additional complexity with a strong, lingering finish that includes minerality, graphite and spices. This wine has the intensity, structure and concentration to age and become more complex over the next 15 to 20 years.

Tight, with a dark cast to the blackberry and tar flavors, playing lightly against slightly gritty tannins on the firm finish. Best from 2012 through 2016.

Though this is near the bottom end of the Rex Hill Pinot pole, it does not suffer from a lack of flavor. Big fruit, organically grown, runs right through the core, a mix of berries, cherries and plums; woven into the fruit is a lightly leafy vein, a whiff of tobacco, and a suggestion of earthy, organic compost. Thoroughly delicious.

Focused, satiny and elegant, with a powerful thrust behind the pure currant and boysenberry flavors, shaded with touches of talcum and cream as the finish expands. Drink now through 2019. 6,162 cases made. -HS Bright red. Spicy raspberry and red cherry aromas are complicated by lively floral and herbal qualities. Sappy and round, with sweet red fruit and candied rose flavors, supple tannins and subtle spiciness. This open-knit pinot finishes with a touch of heat. ** Only 16 in Stock **

The new releases begin with the 2009 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley, a multiple AVA blend of which there are 6000+ cases. Medium ruby red in color, it exhibits aromas of damp earth, cinnamon, clove, brown sugar, cherry, and raspberry. In the glass it reveals a smooth texture, savory flavors, moderate depth and concentration, and good balance. Drink this tasty effort over the next 5–6 years.
