Community Tasting Notes 14
January 18, 2014 - More than three years on since the last sampling; I cannot believe that it was better than this before. A pity then that this is the last of the '07. A tricky vintage for many but I think Todd did an excellent job with this. Clear garnet, perfumed aroma, floral notes and candy, bright tart cherries, smoothly textured. Uncomplicated but nicely balanced.

July 28, 2013 - Light and fruity, but with decent balance. Not a lot of earthy characteristics, at least not yet. Maybe later? Pretty sure these will age gracefully for some time yet.

February 4, 2013 - When I first popped this I actually just thought it was the WV bottling. Oops. Turns out it was a pretty good time to open the Ana so no harm no foul. Typical 07. Refreshing to drink. Spice and cherry fruit. High acidity. Acid haters should flee. Bright and juicy. The stems seem to be the boss of the finish. Earthy and stemmy. Would have preferred things be a little cleaner.

November 11, 2012 - I've had several elegant, enjoyable 07 OR Pinots. This is not one of them. A pale, clear garnet color, with an autumnal nose of leaves and earth - all good. But on the palate, thin and reedy, with an unpleasant bitter aftertaste. I'm willing to concede that this is probably a stylistic difference of opinion - after trying several B-H wines I can safely say they aren't especially to my taste.

August 1, 2011 - A ton of shitty 07 OR Pinots (Patricia Green Cellars, Newburg OR): nose: very red fruit based nose of red berries, spice tones, dark red cherries and bits of plums. Nice depth with an expressive side on the nose
taste: lighter bodied with medium/high acidity and tones of spices, dark red cherries, herbs and a touch of plum tones
overall: this seems like it does need some more time. It was a bit too light on the palate, but the nose was gorgeous
