From the vintner:
The 2009 Estate Pinot Noir is an elegant wine that truly expresses the terroir of the three unique vineyard sites within the Willamette Valley that contribute to this bottling. Aromas of baked red apples, cherry, pie spice and brown sugar are complemented by a hint of cinnamon on the nose. A smooth and sweet entry with flavors of brandied cherry, dark chocolate and leather dominate the palate. A classic Pinot noir with delicate, round tannins and nicely balanced acidity that lingers into a spicy finish. Appealing now but will further reward those who cellar this wine. Peak drinkability 2012 - 2016. Serving Suggestions Perfect pairing for dishes with complex spices. Will also pair beautifully with cracked black pepper salmon or roasted five-spice pork tenderloin.
