2008 Winderlea Vineyard & Winery Ana Vineyard Dundee Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $50. Own-rooted vines planted in 1976 on a 350’ to 450‘ ridge. Pommard and 777 clones. Owned and farmed by Andy Humphrey. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Nicely perfumed mix of berries with a strong scent of oak. Tasty core of red strawberries and raspberries and chocolate-covered cherries with an underpinning of oak char that fans out on the palate. Still a bit rough hewed and tannic, but offers some charming fruit that has good persistence. Should improve in the cellar as the tannins meld and the oak integrates further. Very good.
