Oregon Pinot Noir (Trent's): This seemed to be a love it or not kind of wine. It took a while to open and for me, it certainly kept improving all night long. Needs air at this time. Purple/ruby in color. The nose is deep with cherries. Very nice body, long finish, but the first hour, I found little fruit on the palate. Eventually, cherries, and sour cherries came out. I will hold my remaining bottles for a bit.
Ruby with med-lite viscosity in the glass. Tangerine, red fruit, cherry skin, forest floor and chalk on the nose. Med-lite body, young and tart with tangerine, cranberry, cherry, lime and chalk on the palate. Previous bottle I tasted was very tight and weak mid-palate. This one is structured and mouth puckering with persistent sour red fruit. Med-long finish. Should pair nicely with pork and heavier fish dishes.
Garnet with medium viscosity in the glass. Kirsch, black cherry, cedar and tobacco on the nose. Med-lite body and young with soft cherry on the palate. Weak mid-palate. Lacking structure. Short finish. Drinkable, but not serviceable.
