2006 Brandborg Benchlands Umpqua Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., $18, screw cap. From vineyards on the alluvial benches above the Umpqua River. · Light garnet in color in the glass. Shy nose featuring subtle aromas of cherries, oak spice, popsicle stick and herbs. Tasty cherry and strawberry fruit flavors with a hint of red licorice. On the lighter side with supple tannins and a dry finish. A very good daily drinker. Decent (+). Reviewed November 29, 2009
