    March 28, 2020 - Popped and poured to accompany baked chicken. Darker ruby color. Nose of violets, black cherry, raspberry, a bit of cinnamon, earthy soil. Densely packed on the palate with layers of blackberry, black raspberry, and graphite, with a bit of tart cherry and iron at the end. Structured and moderately tannic with fresh balancing acidity. This showed very coiled and young. Impressive quality but needs 3-5 years to stretch out.

    March 14, 2020 - From Coravin. Red berry and cherries, sweet spice, a little leather, earth, toast on the nose. in the mouth its got juicy acidity, fleshy cherry, talc textured tannins with a slight green edge to them. Leather, a little alcohol warmth encroaches on the finish. Nice. time or now for me.

    January 24, 2020 - Bought at the winery in 2007

    While there was a deep cherry and earthy aromas on this aged Pinot noir, it was lacking any really body on the palate or the finish.

    Think this was past its prime.

    December 27, 2019 - 2005 Domaine Drouhin Oregon Pinot Noir Laurène (375ml bottle). Mid-brick. amber edges; earthy, stemmy Pinot nose; hints of oak, smoke; mid-body; balanced; decent acids; softening tannins; good Pinot fruit on the palate; hints of wood on the finish. 16.5 UC Davis scale, 91 other scales.

    (Domaine Drouhin Oregon Pinot Noir Laurène) Rich, red color. Unsurprisingly for a Burgundian family, smells like red Burgundy: notes of pickle jar, with typically subtle, sour-cherry aromas, lightly dusted in pepper and spice. The acidity presents itself on the finish. Well constructed, balanced, and integrated. Definitely age-worthy; would be a pity to drink it now. Sherry: History by the Glass
