2006 Grochau Cellars Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $24. This is Grochau’s entry level serious Pinot Noir but that doesn’t mean it is wimpy. It is a blend of fruit from multiple vineyards. · The aromatics are striking with dark berries and plums showing off. Dark fruits continue on the palate with oak and mushroom nuances. The after taste of black Pinot fruits is haunting and lengthy. A lot of pinotosity. Reviewed January 30, 2008
