2005 Et Fille Kalita Vineyard Yamhill-Carlton Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 91 cases, $32. This 10 acre vineyard was planted in 1999 to Pommard and Dijon clones 113,114,115 and 777. The wine was aged for 10 months in 75% new French oak. · The perfume is exotic with spiced cherries, mahogany, and cigar box most evident. The flavors are woodsy and earthy, with prominent mushroom notes as well as red licorice highlights. At this stage, the aromas trump the flavors, but this filly (sic) hasn’t gotten out of the gate yet. Reviewed August 13, 2007
