2009 Árdiri Due Stati Oregon/California Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $N/A. “Two states.” Produced from seven clones, aged 18 months in French oak and barrel selected. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Shy aromas of slightly roasted black fruits, brewed tea and oak. Flavors of dark berries and plum that veer to the ripe side with a hint of carmelized oak. Good mid palate intensity and follow through on the finish with balanced tannins. Chehalem Mountains fruit dominates the flavor and stylistic profile. Good. Reviewed June 4, 2013
