1997 St. Innocent Pinot Noir O'Connor Vineyard - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley (11/3/2006)
Mark brought this to the Haggis' house for a happy hour this week. We opened it next to a 2002 St. Innocent Seven Springs. I really enjoyed the opportunity to try these 2 wines side by side. This wine was more burglike than the 2002. It showed signs of bricking. A little compost pile on the nose. Earthy core of flavors. Smooth finish. 89-90 points.
