From prior notes: "medium ruby color - nose of red fruits, herbs. Palate this time seemed brighter than last bottle. Red fruits, dried raspberry, strawberry/rhubarb, oak, earth, lavender, baking spices..."
An elegant and restrained wine, it is still a bright. Nicely aged and in a good spot. Noted on this bottle a bit more raspberry, baking spice and cinnamon. Our guests were split on this, Valerie and I always like BF. Was too lean for CVA, probably looking for the earthiness of a Burgundy...This is my last bottle of this vintage. Decant matters for this wine, would drink over the next few years, seems as if it may start to fade.
This is delicious. Classic pinot noir profile of spicy fruits, cinnamon, some menthol, a little stem. The style is bright and restrained, could be old world except it lacks the earthiness of France. There's a sneaky length and persistence that it's compelling. Terrific Oregon PN.
