Willakenzie Estate 'Pierre Leon' Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton District Oregon 2010
The 2010 Estate Cuvée has a beautiful garnet color. The aromas are bright and floral with hints of sweet vanilla, forest floor and petunia. The flavors follow the aromas with a smooth, sweet entry of cherry cobbler, juicy strawberries, and Asian spices. The red fruit and spice transform into a slate-like, herbal finish that lingers on the tongue. This wine is very approachable when young. The aging potential is 5+ years. Pair with steamed Chinese chicken dumplings, or a simple filet of sole or roast chicken.
