A very atypical Pinot Noir for Oregon, but especially for the vintage. This is very rich with lots of dark fruit flavors, most prominent black plum. This is a full bodied Pinot Noir, on the palate this is ultra sexy and satiny smooth. The mouthfeel is amazing really and these characters are emerging as a hallmark of wines made by Linda Donovan. The finish is admirably long and persistent. A delicious Pinot, possibly the best I have ever had from our neck of the woods.
