2006 Scott Paul Audrey Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $55 (sold out). This is the top bottling from Scott Paul, a special cuvee of the best barrels in the cellar. Named after Audrey Hepburn. · A “Burgundian” nose of deep red fruits, cinnamon, cardamon, and barnyard. Big and serious, the dark fruit core is all crushed silk. Still simple and closed, with a touch of alcohol peeking out on the nose and finish. Not ready for prime time and patience will be rewarded. Reviewed September 15, 2008
