Community Tasting Notes (average 91 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 4 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by KPB on 3/8/2014 & rated 93 points: My goodness, this has done well in the cellar! Still very dark, but the aromatic profile is less primary now and shows griotte cherries, leather, hints of spice (more to come if you can wait a few more years), basmati rice. On the palate, richly flavorful without seeming overly ripe or sweet; lovely acidity that lifts and shapes the wine, and soft tannins. Very long finish shows limestone and lingers endlessly.

 Tasted by Loren Sonkin on 3/11/2012 & rated 92 points: Neighborhood Game Night assortment (Our home): I drink a lot of Sineann (been friends with Peter since our college days in the late 70's) but can't remember if I had this one before. It really showed well, perhaps a testament to the vintage as much as the vineyard. Ruby red in color. The nose has dark cherries with an earthy/gravelly under layer. Clean. On the palate, cherries and dark cherries. Perhaps some Faygo Red Pop as well. Young but there is some tight layering. This is a big wine for Oregon standard, but remains light on its feet. Nice finish. (1323 views)
 Tasted by manonthemoon on 5/20/2010 & rated 88 points: Notes from day 2. Dark red to lighter purple in color. Nose of raspberry, lavender, earth, slate, and a touch of spice. The palate has good mixed tart raspberry fruit, little fall earth, minerality, touch of spice. Average finish that lingers longer than I anticipated. Really nice acidity for this medium styled pinot. Good qpr effort. 50+5+11+16+6 (1290 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.
