The A to Z Pinot Noir leads with aromas of cherries, raspberries, and blackberries, developing to iris, blueberries, strawberries and minerals. A beautiful attack has vibrant red fruit flavors and floral notes, then deepens with hints of blood orange and blueberry jam. Ripe tannins are balanced by perfect acidity and the mid-palate reveals spice, tobacco and earth notes adding richness and complexity. The finish is quite long which allows all the elements of the wine to come together and show the intrinsic balance and complexity of the Oregon vintage.
Bright and graceful, with pretty cantaloupe and almond flavors on a slightly nubby texture, lingering on the finish. Drink now. - HS
This firm, chewy wine seems to have a spine of steel. It also has ample cherry fruit and some astringent, grippy tannins. Sealed with a screwcap, it will benefit from aggressive decanting or prolonged aeration before drinking.
