  • 2007 Domaine Drouhin Oregon Pinot Noir Laurène - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Dundee Hills (10/27/2012)
    This is fantastic. The persistent finish becomes a slight bit tart but otherwise everything is really fantastic. Very elegant, lighter bodied pinot, but the persistence of the finish makes it come across as quite strong and firm. Cherry, smoke and floral nose. Add some mossy flavors on the palate. Crisp acidity. Very nice.

Thanks for the note. Glad that you didn't get the "2007 Oregon Pinot's are Crap" memo. Big Grin

Actually I took that more seriously than I should have. I didn't get much but I've liked most of what I have had.

Many '07 Oregon Pinot's are showing wonderful right now.

The O7 Oregon pinots have definitely opened up and are ready to drink. Several of them, which I was very displeased with upon release, are drinking nicely now. The Laurene really needed time upon release, and has rewarded those that waited to pop.
