Community Tasting Notes (average 86.9 pts. and median of 88 pts. in 21 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Wino73 on 11/17/2013 & rated 70 points: Blah! This Pinot smelled of earth and mildew. No fruit flavors came through. Maybe a tart cherry and then nothing. I dumped the bottle. (1608 views)
 Tasted by Dexter Morgan on 5/24/2013 & rated 89 points: Cherry core with fuchsia rim. Expressive aromas of strawberries, raspberries, cherries, rhubarb, sassafras, and cola. The flavors are restrained and not as articulate as its bouquet. Light-to-mid weight, hibiscus mid-palate, and a medium finish. Attractive. (2316 views)
 Tasted by Sid_Mac on 3/30/2013 & rated 89 points: Good flavor intensity while maintaining Pinot Noir characteristics. Silky mouth-feel, medium-bodied. Everything worked for me in this wine. (2377 views)
 Tasted by xerxeslab on 11/23/2012 & rated 88 points: Enjoyed during Thanksgiving Dinner 2012. Matched well with our Brine Turkey & Shallot Gravy. Enjoyed but everyone. Opened nicely after an hour providing a nice medium finish. (2789 views)
 Tasted by maderay on 10/27/2012 & rated 84 points: G. Not much aromas or flavors (2971 views)
 Tasted by g & t on 9/22/2012 & rated 88 points: no rough edges, light-medium body, dark in the glass, good dose of earth and raspberry, medium length finish with pleasant balance. not a bad pinot, but not worth a penny over $17. (1596 views)
 Tasted by 125Moonstone on 3/29/2012 & rated 90 points: Pomegranate, red berry. Fun, savory, but with a gentle finish. (1456 views)
 Tasted by cartime on 12/26/2011 & rated 90 points: Tart cherry, pomegranate, earthy minerals, and a hint of sweet spice. Good acidity and fine tannins. My first 2010 Oregon PN and my initial impression is similar to that of 2009 - not a critics' vintage - lacks ripeness and structure, but nice acidity and accessible young. (1686 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.
