Screwcap – Light and ethereal nose with herbal and raspberry notes, spicy black, anise high tones, very engaging nose, light and willowy. Touches of emergent peanut brittle, clay, mineral rich potting soil and a touch of cracked peppercorn add complexity. Soft and round in the mouth with minimal tannins and well integrated acidity. Rather sleek in it’s softness. A lovely sappy note in the mouth, with clean, pure red berry fruit in a very easy style that finishes with long, sweet and subtly spicy red berry notes. Elegant and understated with gentle flavors that are edged with fresh earthy, beet root and herbal notes. 90pts

Wine Tasting NotesLively aromas of raspberry, cranberry and cherry are complemented by tones of dried rose petal, spice and cedar. The wine is vibrant and juicy in the mouth, with initial flavors of strawberry, fresh raspberry and plum, finishing with darker tones of plum, blackberry and a hint of caramel. The bright fruit is balanced by good acidity and round, well-integrated tannins to create a wine that is accessible and a pleasure to drink. It is ready now and will continue to improve for 2 to 3 years from its release date. Enjoy by itself as an aperitif and with roast chicken, pork chops, pt or grilled salmon.

($43) Bright red. Smoky red and dark berries on the nose. Chewy blackberry and cherry flavors are firmed by dusty tannins and complemented by a subtle note of candied flowers. Leaves musky underbrush and floral notes behind on the long, chewy finish.... Stephen Tanzer. A Pinot Noir wine from Oregon in USA. 2006 Willakenzie Estate Pinot Noir Pierre Leon 750ml

Pinot Noir Aliette is made from a single gently sloped southeast-facing block at an elevation of 570 to 610 feet planted to the Pommard clone in 1992. This vineyard designated wine represents a more feminine style of Pinot Noir which is complex in fruit earth and floral notes. Full-bodied yet smooth on the palate this wine can be consumed young with strongly flavored foods or cellared for up to ten years.

Broad at the outset, with scents of juniper and bay, this wine is tightly packed with black cherry flavor. It fills the palate with succulent fruit while those herbal accents keep the wine savory, the firm fruit-skin tannins in the finish suggesting a pairing with boar sugo.

Winemaker's Notes:

Named after the soil that defines it, WillaKenzie Estate is a small, family-owned winery dedicated to the highest expression of terroir. They make wonderful wines exclusively from the Pinot family of grapes: Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Meunier, and Pinot Noir, as well as Gamay Noir made in the Beaujolais Cru style. All the wines are entirely from estate grown fruit. Owner Bernard Lacroute developed a passion for Pinot Noir in his native Burgundy. In January 1991, Bernard and Ronni Lacroute purchased the ideal Pinot site they had been seeking: a beautiful 420-acre ranch in Yamhill County which they began planting to grapevines in 1992. Today, more than 100 acres of vineyards are arranged on the rolling hills below theChehalem mountains, around untouched stands of majestic, native Douglas fir and oak. The European theme continues with the remaining key staff at WillaKenzie: with a degree in oenology from the University of Bordeaux, Thibaud Mandet brings a French touch to the art and science of winemaking. This fusion of European talent with American natural resources seems to encapsulate the essence of the estate and its wines. Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a deep garnet colour with clarity and offering complex aromas of rich red and black fruits with attractive floral tones and a touch of spice. Elegant yet concentrated, flavours of bright plum and cherry in the forefront augmented by red currants and blackberries, a smooth mouthfeel from well-integrated tannins and finely balanced acidity, and a long finish with hints of candied fruit and spice. This medium bodied wine is extremely food friendly and will pair with a great variety of dishes including roasted poultry, salmon, lighter meats such as pork or veal, and charcuterie.
