Willakenzie Pinot Noir Emery 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Estate Cuvee offers attractive aromas of red fruit, with hints of nutmeg and pleasing earthiness. The flavors match the aromas with fresh cherry and cranberry followed by subtle darker notes of blueberry and blackberry. The palate impression is refined yet refreshing with bright acidity and hints of citrus and caramel on the finish. 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. Ready to enjoy now, it will benefit from 1 to 2 years in the cellar and will age well for up to 5 years from its date of release. It can also be served slightly chilled.

WillaKenzie Estate:
Willakenzie Estate’s life began in 1991 when founder Bernard Lacroute purchased a cattle ranch. This 420 acre ranch, located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, was named after the Willakenzie soil that breathes life into their vines. In 2000, an additional 95 acres of land, this time in the Dundee Hills, was obtained, and it was named the Jory Hills vineyard after the Jory soil type. ... Read more
Willakenzie Estate’s life began in 1991 when founder Bernard Lacroute purchased a cattle ranch. This 420 acre ranch, located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, was named after the Willakenzie soil that breathes life into their vines. In 2000, an additional 95 acres of land, this time in the Dundee Hills, was obtained, and it was named the Jory Hills vineyard after the Jory soil type. In total, there are about 105 acres under vine at the original Yamhill location, with another 25 acres at the Jory Hills vineyard. Two thirds of the grapes planted at the original vineyard are Pinot Noir, while the remainder is other Pinot grapes, along with Chardonnay. Willakenzie’s winery was built in 1995, right as their first harvest was coming to a close. Today, about 20,000 cases of wine are produced annually, thanks to the hard work of winemaker Thibaud Mandet. Read less

Floral and herbal on the nose with green berry notes that are enchanting. The nose smells fresh, bright and organic. In the mouth this is zesty with transparent sweet cranberry fruit. It's lively and pure, if a touch simple, but with such crisp purity it's undeniable appealing! Drink it sooner rather than later 2009-2011 91pts

Film canister, acetone, gun powder, with strawberry and mango, and citric body without tannins.

Smoke and tar and coffee and spice envelop this wine. A solid wine for sure and certainly easy on the pocket book.

The Willakenzie winery is named after the soil in which the vines are planted, and it is known for its Burgundian-style Pinot Noirs. Red and black fruit flavors, with bright acidity and hints of baking spices, are all in attendance here, and floral aromas waft from the glass. Overall, this is a delicious Oregon Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley.
