2010 Kramer Vineyards Estate Yamhill-Carlton District Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., pH 3.70, TA 0.58, 125 cases, $20. From a sustainably farmed estate vineyard, including various clones from several blocks. Winemaker is Trudy J. Kramer. 100% de-stemmed, 10-day cold soak, aged 10 months in 33% new French oak barrels. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Love the nose which is fragrant with aromas of exotically spiced black cherries with a hint of toast. Over time in the glass, the scent of cardamom spice and rose petals emerge. Moderately rich essence of black cherries and cranberries with a black tea, tar and citrus note in the background. Has some backbone, but the tannins are ripe and not intrusive. Highly enjoyable now. Very good. Reviewed September 12, 2012 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2009 Kramer Vineyards Yamhill-Carlton Brut Sparkling Wine

12.5% alc., pH 3.10, TA 0.90, Residual Sugar 0.3%, 149 cases, $24. 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. · Faint yellow color in the glass with a good bead. Complex nose with an array of scents including green apple, lemon zest, white peach, roasted nuts and dough. Flavors of green apple, lemon and toasted brioche are lifted by bright acidity, and hang on through the long, bone dry finish. Highly enjoyable. Very good.
