2007 Laura Volkman Vineyards St. James Estate Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 160 cases, $20. Primarily neutral barrels used. Mainly press wine. A value-priced “stimulus” Pinot Noir. · Light in color and body but possessing appealing aromas and flavors of spice-marked red fruits. A very easy drinking wine with gossamer tannins that charmed me with its yeast-induced spiciness. This is a perfect every day aperitif or mealtime wine to buy by the case. Reviewed August 17, 2009
