2010 DION Vineyard Winemaker Reserve Chehalem Mountains Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

100 cases, $35. Aged 13 months in 50% new French oak barrels and held in bottle 6 months before release. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Shy, but pleasing aromas of strawberry, red cherry and dried Provencal herbs. A wine with modesty and restraint, but good flavor, featuring tastes of red fruits, savory dried herbs and gentle oak spice. Soft and elegant in the mouth with lacy tannins. Good (+).
