2005 Hamacher Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $37. · Subdued, but pleasant scents of red fruits, Jolly Rancher red, and herbs. Restrained and elegant stylistically with a graceful core of darker red berries and cherries and a deft touch of oak. Soft and silky and very round with a finish that fades gently over time. A pristine Pinot of great charm. Reviewed September 15, 2008
