2007 Alexana Revana Vineyard Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $38. The inaugural estate Pinot Noir. Six clones including 113, 115, 667, 777, Pommard and W├Ądenswil. The winemaker is Lynn Penner-Ash. The proprietor is Dr. Madaiah Revana who named this wine as a tribute to his daughter Alexandra. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Lovely and seductive nose which hints at gardenias upon opening, evolving to reveal aromas of strawberry tart, baking spices and red cherries. Soft and elegant on the palate with gossamer tannins, offering the delicious essence of fresh red berry fruits with herbs, toasty oak, and spices under tow. A feminine expression of Pinot Noir that holds considerable charm. Reviewed June 22, 2010
