2008 Lachini Vineyards Family Estate Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., $45. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Restrained aromas of red and dark fruits with a noticeable oak driven coffee scent. Much more giving on the palate with a delicious medium weight array of layered dark Pinot fruits underlain with generous oak highlights and unresolved tannins. Despite its impressive concentration, there is admirable finesse carrying over to the silky smooth finish. Very good. Reviewed March 12, 2011
