    ($30) Bright medium red. Smoky redcurrant and cherry aromas are complicated by dried rose and spicecake. Deeper dark berry flavors are firmed by silky tannins and become sweeter with air. Shows very good power on the focused dark berry-flavored finish. This is the best version of this bottling I can recall. Winemaker Steve Doerner told me that he used 50% whole clusters across the board in 2008.

    The entry-level 2008 Pinot Noir Mt. Jefferson Cuvee includes some purchased fruit. Dark ruby red, it offers up aromas of rose petal, spice box, incense, cherry, and raspberry. On the palate it displays medium body, sweet fruit, plenty of spice, and enough ripe tannin to evolve for 1-2 years. However, it can be approached now and over the next 6-8 years.

    Loved this pinot. Easy to drink. Can't wait to try the Eileen Vineyard 2008.

Oregon has seen a huge boom in wine production in recent decades, as has the entire Pacific Northwest region. Once known for small wineries nestled amongst farmland, the Oregon wine industry has been the recipient of a huge capital influx, which has opened up new vine-growing territory and built numerous large-production brands. Although best known for Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, which sits at the same latitude as Burgundy, the state continues to build a reputation for Rhône and white varieties as well.
