Articles About Harper Voit Wines
2009 Harper Voit Strandline Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
13.5% alc., $35. From Drew Voit, former winemaker at Shea Wine Cellars (Declan Wine Co. in Newberg). · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. A bit of reduction upon opening which resolves. Aromas of dark berries, plums, wood spice and rose petals. Full-bodied and rich with a plethora of darker fruits in a California style. Substantial tannins make for tough sledding and a strange oiled wood note in the background probably from oak spoils the experience for me. Not what I would expect from Drew who is an excellent winemaker so I will reserve judgement on this one bottle. Reviewed November 24, 2012 ARTICLE »
