Not my btl. PnP. Not surprisingly, I liked this wine. Especially the big nose. Classically styled and would easily pass for Burgundy from the Cote Beaune. Loved the earthiness and minerality. Someone said the ALC was 14.5% but it doesn't feel that way. CT says average value around $60 and that seems reasonable for how it drinks right now. On release, I'd want to pay $40 or less.
Post IPNC blind 2004 Oregon Pinot Noir tasting (Matello): Smells good, ripe strawberries and short-bread, almost white cake. Also some light earthy notes. On the palate, sweet red fruit, earthy mid-palate with nice tannins and tart acidity as the wine finishes. On the finish, a transition to flavors of ripe fig and spiced cherries. Long finish, medium-heavy weight.
