Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2006 Viridian Pinot Noir from the Olsen Family Vineyardsis made in a classic style that is familiar to wine drinkers throughoutthe world. Emphasis is on a wine that exhibits the strong character ofthe lush dark blue (some say black) Pinot Noir grapes that only thevineyards in the Willamette Valley of Oregon seem to be able to deliverconsistently. The Olsen vineyard sites are exceptional even in thiswell known region.The 2006 Pinot Noir has a deep, rich ruby color that makes it almostimpossible to see through the glass. It exhibits an intense aroma ofdark cherries and pomegranates that develop into a strong depth offlavor. It lingers on the tongue and finishes with a hint of spice inthe background. Be careful though, this wine could just "knock yoursocks off" as one taster put it. The 2006 Viridian Pinot Noiris a medium, full bodied wine which is not heavy, but has the strengthto linger with red meats and strong spicy cuisine. Serve it withsteaks, chops or to enhance the strongest and most intense dishes. Youmight even open a bottle and savor it on its own to add pleasure to acozy evening."Winery Notes
