2008 Westrey Oracle Vineyard Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $25. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Demure aromas of darker fruits with a hint of oak. Rich, silky and comforting on the palate with darker fruits grabbing the limelight. Not as expressive as would like with a little stem note. Impressive fruit core with the tannic structure and acidity to go the distance. Hold this wine in your cellar while you drink the Willamette Valley bottling. Very good. Reviewed August 9, 2010
