Here’s a silky, pretty, very fruity Oregon Pinot that reminds us of Russian River Valley. Sustainably farmed vineyard, harvested fully mature (2006: very good in the Willamette Valley), destemmed, cold soaked 5 days before fermenting. Nice kiss of French oak here. The result: rich red/black cherry, exotic Pinot spice, rosewater, LUSH. Easy wine to like. 170 cases made.
