2009 White Rose Vineyard Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., $24. · Very appealing nose displaying aromas of fresh cherries, black raspberries, spice and subtle oak. A lighter-weighted style with charming cherry fruit, picking up intensity over time in the glass. Still a bit tight, with tannins mildly secluding the fruit flavors and the nose currently trumping the palate. Needs another 6 to 12 months in bottle. Good (+). Reviewed November 2, 2011
