| ||Tasted by Snoski62 on 6/15/2014 & rated 91 points: Just plain good! Cherry and some light floral on the nose. Light in color. Silky in the mouth with emerging cherry and strawberry and some wood on the finish. Very nice! (1145 views)|
| ||Tasted by Bob H on 11/25/2013: Another bottle from Monsieur Trimpi - noticeably lighter in color than the Lapierre. Great pinot nose, with a nice dash o' funk accenting the red berries - an overused descriptive, but this is a very Burgundian nose.|
Light-bodied, red-fruited, and maybe a little thin/dilute for my tastes - the palate can't quite match the nose, but still all in a nice wine on a Monday night. We'll see if this fleshes out with some air as well. (1595 views)
| ||Tasted by shaferguy91 on 10/2/2013 & rated 91 points: No decant. Really good. (1728 views)|
| ||Tasted by Weston3220 on 7/17/2013 & rated 90 points: 4th Annual Pinot Extravaganza with Salmon Dinner (Eugene, Oregon): I will admit I always do like Scott Paul, it has that elegant sweet intense fruit very cherry/cranberry/strawberry|
Conc: Love it, just like the 08, 09 vintages before it (2103 views)
| ||Tasted by Haltermr on 5/31/2013 & rated 93 points: This bottle was a stunner. Pours very pale, but the crystalline Rabaja like cherry, strawberry, and rhubarb fruit leaps out of the glass, with nice mineral, rose, and just a touch of earth. Deceptively mid bodied and consistent across the palate. It carries some weight, with plenty of fruit and tannin, and has a pleasing persistent finish. Wish I had much more of this. (2036 views)|
| ||Tasted by shaferguy91 on 4/30/2013 & rated 90 points: Not decanted. Very light color. (1411 views)|
| ||Tasted by benkearney on 12/9/2012 & rated 91 points: Continue to love these wines. Very delicate, rose and light fruit on the nose. Flavors light raspberries, slight spice and some forest floor. Just a hint of that Oregon funk. I will hold my other bottles for awhile. I think this has room to improve. (1282 views)|
| ||Tasted by tarheel17 on 4/24/2012 & rated 93 points: STG does Oregon Pinot (Ed's house): My WOTN|
This was just very pretty. Delicate, yet flavorful, I found it altogether delightful. I don't have extensive notes, but it was by far my preferred wine at the tasting. I could drink this every day. (2119 views)
| ||Tasted by cliffkol on 4/19/2012 & rated 91 points: Willamette Valley - Tasted at winery: Almost 100% Maresh vineyard. Light, elegant, slight spices on the palate. Rich nose of red fruiit. (2092 views)|
| ||Tasted by bbbh on 4/1/2012 & rated 90 points: More fruit forward than I'd expected, and less intense. May have tried it too young (1443 views)|
| ||Tasted by doglover on 11/8/2011: Got an early look at the pre-release 2010 Audrey at La Paulee de Carlton. This is going to be a gorgeous, elegant Scott Paul. Can't wait to try again on release. (1624 views)|

Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.
