| ||Tasted by The13thGryphon on 10/2/2013 & rated 86 points: Nothing to rave about. Okay for the price. (1329 views)|
| ||Tasted by chatters on 9/15/2013: Cream, raspberry/red berry fruit with slight vanilla notes. In the mouth the wine has medium minus tannin, red berry and is quite subtle and elegant though simplistic. One to tidy away on a quiet night I think. (1276 views)|
| ||Tasted by UpfromtheCellar on 4/6/2013 & rated 86 points: Light, good example of generic Oregon pinot. Simple but correct. (1678 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.
