2008 Winderlea Vineyard & Winery Dundee Hills Vineyards Oregon Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $36. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Alluring aromatics displaying scents of black cherries, violets and a hint of oak spice picking up intensity over time in the glass. A fruity wine with a tasty core of cherry and berry fruit accented by oak-driven flavors of anise, vanillin and smoke. A good snap of acidity brings up the refreshing finish. The most approachable of the three 2008 Winderlea wines. Still fine two days later from a previously opened and re-corked bottle indicating it will last in the cellar. Good (+).
