2005 Scott Paul Cuvée Martha Pirrie Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 469 cases, $24, screw cap. From Shea, Stoller and Ribbon Ridge Vineyards. Named after Daughter Martha Pirrie Wright. · This Pinot reminds me of a ballet dancer - light on its feet with plenty of grace. Lovely nose of cherries, sandalwood and spice. Flavors of ripe cherries, vanilla, herbs and leather lead to a clean finish buttressed by lively acidity. A little oak peeks out on the nose but is totally immersed in the flavors. You would be happy, happy with this one which is not at all tiring to drink. Boo, hoo, sold out (you may still find it in retail stores). Reviewed August 13, 2007
