2007 Anam Cara Cellars Nicholas Estate Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir

13.4% alc., 1,100 cases, $33. Composed of all the clones in the estate vineyard. Aged 11 months in 21% new French oak. · Hi-tone black cherry aromas are underscored by toasty oak on the nose. Tasty essence of dark cherries and berries with oak toast and mocha in the background. The tannins are supple giving the wine a welcoming drinkability. The oak tends to overshadow the fruit. Decent.
