2009 Seven of Hearts Special Reserve Pinot Noir Willamette Valley

2009 Seven of Hearts Pinot Noir Special Reserve Willamette Valley

Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, July/August 2011. By: Josh Raynolds. Deep red.  Heady bouquet of raspberry and cherry-cola, with Asian spice and floral nuances becoming stronger with air.  Silky and seamless on the palate, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a touch of gingerbread.  Fine-grained tannins come on late and add shape to the long, floral, vanilla-accented finish. 91 points

PinotFile, August 13, 2011. By: Rusty Gaffney, MD. Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Nice array of aromas including fresh cherries, red currants, spice and a hint of vanilla. Cherry pie filling is the theme with crisp acidity, firm tannins and a lingering presence of perfectly ripe fruit on the finish. Very ephemeral in the mouth. Very Good. Read full review here: http://princeofpinot.com/tastingnote/4431/
