2005 Winter’s Hill Vineyard Reserve Dundee Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 146 cases. The best six barrels out of forty in the 2005 vintage. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of cigar, old wood and leather vest lead off. More fruit expression on the palate, offering delicious mid weight flavors of black cherry fruit accented with brown spice and nutty oak. Surprisingly alert, lively and highly pleasurable, with modest tannins still in action. A terrific aged Pinot Noir that will please all pinotphiles. Drink now to 2020. Reviewed February 1, 2017
