2006 The Four Graces Estate Reserve Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 2,755 cases, $42. Aged 13 months in 46% new French oak and an additional 7 months in bottle before release. · The aromas of Bing cherry, cedar and vanilla draw you to the glass. There is the slightest hint of alcohol on the nose. Succulent hi-tone red fruits, especially raspberry, set off by brown sugar and dark chocolate notes, are soft, seamless and comforting. Definitely worthy of a “Reserve” designation. Pinot Geek wanted to drink the whole bottle. Reviewed September 15, 2008
