2006 Et Fille Maresh Vineyard Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.6% alc., 228 cases, $42. Pommard clone from a 2-acre block planted in 1990. · This one speaks of the soil on the nose with an aromatic combination of wet new wood, earth, barnyard, wild berries and Pinot must. Mouth-filling and lush red strawberries and Bing cherries are enhanced by baking spices and a touch of tobacco. No tannin in sight. Plenty of finesse and a stylish effort through and through. Jessica Mozeico says, “This is smooth luxury - like the curved lines of a Jaguar.” Reviewed September 15, 2008
