  • 2010 Domaine Drouhin Oregon Pinot Noir - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley (10/22/2012)
    Very nice. Cherry, smoke, and Christmas spice on the nose. Palate is similar with some raspberry in addition perhaps. Light to medium bodied and quite elegant. Vibrant acidity. Medium length finish.

Thanks for the notes! I used to taste the whole Drouhin lineup every year including the Oregon lineup but they cancelled their Minneapolis tasting this year through the wine company.

While I agree with the TN, I will add that I think this wine will improve with aging. Having just had this in the past week, I probably won't open another for at least a year. I find many of the 2010 Oregon pinots are going to need a little time to sort themselves out.

Hey Sandy:
Please chime in on the 2010 OR Pinot thread I started. I know you are a fan of OR pn and would like to get your take.

Thanks for the review. After being a French Burgundy fan for many years I am just starting to get into the OR Pinots.
