2009 HillCrest Vineyard Memorial Estate Umpqua Valley Pinot Noir

(unlabeled, inquire about availability). From old, non-irrigated, lowyielding vines. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. A very distinctive wine with appealing aromas of black cherries, spice, sarsaparilla, chocolate mint, and smoke. Striking fruit core of ripe dark cherries, black raspberries, cherry cola, dark chocolate, spearmint, spice and sassafras with good tannin support and a generous fruit-filled finish. Definitely speaks of place and is nothing like any Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley or anywhere else in Oregon for that matter. Drink or hold. Reviewed January 19, 2013 WINERY » ARTICLE »
