2008 Laura Volkman Vineyards Jacob Estate Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir

13.5% alc.. · Moderate light cherry color in the glass. Fruity aromas of black cherry and black raspberry with a hint of sous-bois initially with a noticeable oak overlay appearing over time in the glass. The mid weight flavors of ripe black cherries clothed in very fine-grain tannins and toasty oak. Silky and smooth in the mouth with a modest finish. This is the one wine of those tasted from the 2008 vintage that seems a bit tired and should be drunk up. Score: 88. Reviewed February 8, 2015
