The 2006 Pinot Noir has sweet, delicate aromas of raspberry, licorice and violets, with a juicy entry and silky mouthfeel. The sweet and tart flavors of ripe, red cherry and cranberry are accented by hints of vanilla, earth and spice. Lingering notes of cinnamon and clove spice round out the finish. 2006 was a warm year and experience in the cellar created a wine with flavors in balance with acids and alcohol. Drink now-2012.
A great complement to wild salmon. Also try with roasted duck, grilled lamb, mushrooms, and medium cheeses.
Stretches from Portland in the north to Eugene in the south. A majority of the Willamette Valley vineyards lie on the foothills of the Coast Range that forms the western edge of the valley.
