2006 The Four Graces Pinot Noir

The 2006 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from The Four Graces winery is a fabulously fruit forward Oregon Pinot Noir that shows stunning aromas of strawberry candy. Sourced from the low-yielding Black Family Estate located in the Dundee Hills AVA, this pinot has impecable elegance and purity. On the palate delicous strawberry pie and cranberry notes grace the palate with bright acidity and fruit purity. The wine although very tasty and fruit forward, lacks a touch of depth but I am convinced that this style of Oregon Pinot Noir is very positive. What I mean is that it's not earthy and too dry, and I think it's more consumer friendly then some "Burgundian style" Pinots from this area. 89+ points

The Best kept secret in Pinot Noir

Oh come on, do you know what Bugundian style even means? It means not from from Burgundy. Oregon will never compete with real Pinot Noir. Most Pinot Noir in the States is beefed up with Syrah anyway. Up to 15% which can totaly wash away any real varietal characteristic. Which is what Willamette strives for anyway. Not expressing the actual land it comes from.

Bubb, I'll bet my house that this wine doesn't have 15% Syrah, but thanks for your comment anyways!

Oregon Pinots are NOT contaminated with Syrah. What an absurd comment...?!
