2009 Angela Clawson Creek Vineyard Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $45. A tall, very heavy bottle. Clones 777, Wädenswil and 115. The winemaker is Ken Wright. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Savory nose offering aromas of mushrooms, wet leaf, oak and pharmaceutical notes with dark red cherries and berries in the background. Redder fruits are featured with a touch of blueberries, pomegranate and spice. Fairly silky on the palate, but exhibiting firm prodigious tannins, finishing juicy with a bright nerve of acidity. The fruit is buried in the tannins at present. Good. Reviewed January 12, 2012 WINERY » ARTICLE »

A plush and rich palate of black cherry, cassis and blackberries with a subtle woodsy note. Smooth with soft tannins and a healthy acid spine. A compelling wine of great merit.
