2008 Klee Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.7% alc., $17. From Chris Berg’s Racine Wine Co. which also produces the Roots line of Willamette Valley wines. Paul Klee (1879-1940) was a famous teacher of the Bauhaus movement that emphasized functionality, affordability and consistence, all attributes of the Klee wines. The painting that inspired the label is at bauhaus.de. · The nuanced perfume is quite floral with added notes of wild berries, underbrush and spice. Soft and smooth and moderately rich in the mouth featuring dark red dried cherry and berry flavors, an underpinning of earthiness, and fine, ripe tannins. A dependable daily drinker. Good.
