2006 Angela Clawson Creek Vineyard Yamhill-Carlton District Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 400 cases, $50. Aged 10 months 60% new French oak. · Dark reddish-purple robe. Fragrant aromas of black cherry, plum, prune and toasted oak entice. A plush and rich palate of black cherry, cassis and blackberries with a subtle woodsy note. Smooth with soft tannins and a healthy acid spine. A compelling wine of great merit.
