    ($80) Vivid red. Bright red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by dried rose and brown spices. Tangy, sharply focused red fruits on the palate, with slow-mounting spiciness and building power. Silky tannins add grip to the very long, seamless finish. This gained weight with air but maintained admirable vivacity and clarity.

    Light and fragrant, with a silky core of raspberry and strawberry fruit, shaded with loamy earth and green olive notes.

    Decanted for two hours. I thought this helped calm the acidity it had right out of the bottle. Beautiful, expressive nose. Nice cherry, strawberry flavors. I've tried several of 2007 Oregon pinots in the last year and I think they are really starting to come together nicely. This one is ready to go, but no signs of it being on the downhill side.

The Beaux Freres estate property, an old pig farm, is 24 acres of tightly-spaced, low-yielding vines on the steep slopes of Ribbon Ridge in Northern Willamette Valley. Winemaking philosophy and technique follow a commitment to minimal intervention, with native yeast fermentations and only one racking prior to bottling. All the wines are unfined and unfiltered. The wine remains in French oak for a period of 10-12 months, in varying proportions of new wood depending on the strength of the vintage. Because of the "reductive" winemaking style, which keeps the wine away from oxygen as much as possible, Beaux Freres Pinots are made for bottle age. The end result is a true expression of prime Willamette terrior.
