2008 Seven of Hearts Crawford Beck Vineyard Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills

Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, July/August 2010. By: Josh Raynolds. ) Vivid red. Lively raspberry and floral scents give way to deeper cherry and anise on the nose, with a mineral quality adding verve. Graceful and understated but not lacking for power, with incisive red and dark berry flavors framed by silky tannins. A subtle note of dried herbs arrives on the lively finish, which is attractively sweet and very long. Give this lithe pinot an hour of decanting if you plan on opening it any time soon. 92 points
