This was my "epiphany wine" for Oregon Pinot noir beginning with my first sip circa 1986. I had it many times between then and 2009 but here are the tasting notes for my last bottle: 1983 Yamhill Valley Vineyards Oregon Pinot noir: this is the last bottle I’ll probably ever have of my “epiphany” wine; medium-dark ruby color with virtually no sign of age; initially I got a very Burg-like nose (dare I say Dujac?); a mix of red and black cherry fruit with some spiciness in the background; still remarkably “young” with acidity still in evidence and balanced by the fruit; I even got a slight bit of tannin on the long finish; incredible for a nearly 26-year old wine even though I had inadvertently stirred the sediment up a little bit; [6/11/09] at home with The Tuesday Group That Meets on Thursday. Oh, how I wish I had more. Email me at pinot@bellsouth.net if you have any you want to sell or trade.
