2008 Fox Farm Vineyards Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
13.3% alc., 292 cases, $28, screw cap. · Attractive perfume of red fruits, spice, and underbrush with a hint of alcohol. Medium-weighted dried cherry and cranberry flavored core with a rush of tart cherries at the finish. Hi-strung style with bright acidity, minimal tannins and a pleasingly smooth mouth feel. Good.
