2009 Longplay Jory Bench Reserve Lia’s Vineyard Chehalem Mountains Oregon Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., $25. Todd Hanson grower and Aron Hess winemaker. · Light reddish-purple color and slightly cloudy in the glass. Faint aromas of red fruits with noticeable oak toast. Fruity, smoky and savory in a lighter style featuring flavors of earth-kissed red cherries and berries. A very gentle wine that is of interest for its pinotosity and drink ability but doesn’t deliver enough flavor. Good (+). Reviewed January 12, 2012
