Soter Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton Beacon Hill 2006
Soter Beacon Hill Pinot Noir is a delicious wine with enticing aromas of cassis black raspberry cola smoke chocolate and flowers wrapped around a blackberry core. Dense lush and suave it has outstanding concentration of fruit and is big structured powerful and deep with a long flavorful finish.
We just opened this up on Friday and it was such a treat! An elegant pinot that was smooth and full of blackblerries...highly recommend it.
2003 was a very hot year in OR. This wine reflects that vintage: powerfully ripe, monolithic, and still very primary. Lovely pinot texture is offset by a jammy, one-dimensional palate. May yet evolve into something more interesting.
Presented younger than the previous bottle. Drank over 2 hours. Was overwhelmed by tannins and oak. Otherwise, aromas of rose, maple, cherry. On the palate, oak, medicinal finish. Will hold off drinking the last 2 bottles for 9-12 months.
[The Harrison: grilled seabass] Deep violet color. Beautiful aromas of brambleberry, dark cherry and pepper. Started with some dark fruit and a hard edge, but nice subtle blueberry finish. After a couple of hours rounded out nicely with dense, dark cherry, blackberry; later developed rich mocha. Substantional oak and tannins for a pinot. Improvement significantly after a couple of hours, will likely benefit from a year or two, but really enjoyable now.
Black currant and dried cherries on the nose. On the palate raspberry and plum coming through with some toasted oak. Too acidic at first, but after 1 hour the acidity mellowed and turned to very enjoyable.
