($45) Light red. Smoky, musky blackberry aroma is lifted by spicy and floral nuances. Sweet and silky on the palate, conveying an explosive impression of ripe blackberry and cassis. One of the most powerfully fruit-driven wines I tasted from Oregon this year. The juicy, long finish features a concentrated blackcurrant flavor and a complicating smoky quality. Really sexy pinot. (Unfortunately, my bottle of 2004 West Block Reserve was corked.)Author: Josh Raynolds
