2006 Adelsheim Elizabeth’s Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., $40. A barrel selection from four estate vineyards on Chehalem Mountain and a few barrels from northern Willamette Valley. · Heady perfume of strawberry, cherry and fresh herbs. The restrained flavors echo the nose but don’t deliver the intensity of the aromas. A lighter-styled wine that is quite feminine and smooth. The scent trumps the taste now.
