2005 Styring Vineyards Wit Reserve Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $38, available. Sourced from two Yamhill-Carlton vineyards planted in 1977 and 1998. · Moderately deep reddish-purple color. Given some air time in the glass, the wine blossoms revealing scents of wild berries, cardamon and Asian five-spice. On the palate, there are bright blue and black berry fruits, a hint of oak and grilled meat and some savory herbs in the background. Flavorful and smoothly textured with supple tannins and brisk acidity on the finish. Reviewed August 17, 2009
