2006 ROCO Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $40, screw cap. A blend of vineyards including winemaker Rollin Soles’ own Wit’s End Vineyard. · Subdued scents of dark red cherries and red licorice which blossom with time in the glass. Delicious cherry and berry fruit that is soft in the mouth with no perceptible tannin, this harmonious wine glides smoothly to a slightly tangy and refreshing finish. The 2005 version of this wine might be a skosh better, but this one has plenty to recommend. Reviewed September 15, 2008
