2006 Winter’s Hill Vineyard Dundee Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

14.1% alc. Aged 11 months in French oak barrels. · Great color of moderate reddish purple. Aged nose, offering scents of must, marzipan, cigar, decayed stump, seasoned oak and medicinal awareness. Modest in weight, with flavors of black cherry, root beer and white pepper. The fruit still has good freshness and intensity. Nicely balanced, with good length on the fruit-driven finish. The tannins are noticeable yet find their place among the ripe fruit flavors that hold on to a finish that exposes a slight hint of alcoholic warmth. Drink up. Reviewed February 1, 2017
