Drank this at a blind Pinot Noir tasting I held. This was the least favorite of the bunch for four other guests, and the most well-liked by one of the guests. I enjoyed it. It is complex with a bit of heat from the alcohol and some harshness from the tannins, but it got more interesting and layered with repeated tastings. Some Dr. Pepper and cinnamon notes in the finish. I almost detected some watermelon too. Probably would benefit from another year in the bottle. This is a hard wine to be neutral about.

A bottle that seemed to benefit a bit from blending (compared to single vineyard Coleman 2001) but still clearly in decline, and clearly won't get any better with age. Tannins still somewhat intact, giving some structure but overall rather forgettable. A bit of a disappointment. Bought straight from producer ($20).

    Smooth and fragrant, toasty, with a lean core of berry flavor...

    Light in texture, with exuberant berry, cinnamon and vanilla flavors that need until late 1997 or early 1998 to harmonize.

    Impressive flavor and purity of fruit for a mid-priced Pinot. Medium body with firm layers of plum and Bing cherries. Great balance, this chewy Pinot from Oregon will complement grilled salmon or a turkey burger like nobodyrsquo;s business. Really put together well.

    The best of both worlds, merging traditional Burgundian complexity with juicy American fruit. Bright Bing cherry and fresh-picked strawberries couple with hints of mushroom and earth. Perfectly complements any grilled salmon or tuna steak. Great Pinots like this donrsquo;t come along too often at this price mdash; snap one up while you can!

    The vintage of a lifetime for Oregon winemakers. A pretty, supple and elegant array of black cherry flavors finishing with good length.


    Tasting Notes:

    This wine has a nice balance of fruit and earthy components that the barrel and aging added. It is medium bodied, and a beautiful representation of the 2007 growing season.
