2007 Wahle Vineyard & Cellars Yamhill-Carlton District Pinot Noir

13.4% alc. Sourced from the initial plantings established in 1974. · Moderate light garnet color with slight bricking of the rim in the glass. The aromas of black cherry, exotic spices, lavender and graham are pleasant but fleeting. The wine has an aged patina with mid-weight fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry with a floral perfume. Very suave with completely resolved tannins and juicy acidity. An impressive wine especially since 2007 was not a great Oregon vintage, but only for a short time after opening as later the wine faded out with oak coming to the forefront. From my cellar.
