Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

2008 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley:

“Deep red with a bright rim. Pure but subdued aromas of blackcurrant, cherry pit and rose petal. Juicy and penetrating but quite tight, even austere, hinting at musky dark fruits and succulent herbs. This youthful, concentrated wine offers little immediate sweetness but unwinds nicely with an hour or so of aeration.” – Josh Raynolds (July 1, 2010)
