  • 2010 Benton-Lane Pinot Noir Estate Grown Willamette Valley - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley (11/18/2012)
    Slightly tart cherry, slightly charred oak, spicy, resolving to licorice on the finish. On opening this exhibited some green flavors but they went away as the wine got air and warmed up a bit. Very nice.

Have you had any other vintages of the wine and if so how did they compare?

I went through a case of the '04. Really good pinot for the price I thought. Have half a case of the '08's and a few of their '06 First Class in the cellar. Hope they're as good, actually hope the FC is much better.

It's $26/ btl here in KY with all the taxes! Mad, but still a nice wine for the price. The 2010 still needs a little time, imo. Wait about 6 months before popping, or give a good decant and this wine really comes around.
