2005 O'Reilly's Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $14. One of the first Oregon releases from the 2005 vintage. Winemaker David O'Reilly says this vintage is his favorite dating back to 1997 when he began crafting wine in Oregon. O'Reilly's is the second label of Owen Roe and is sourced from several small vineyards. · Very nice aromas of smoke, spice, and red and black fruits. Light in body, it has a great kick of spice on the back end. An excellent summer sipper. Reviewed September 5, 2006
