Eola Hills Pinot Noir 2009

(-) Eola Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2009 $14
I should't complain, because its great to see low priced pinot noir, out there, and $14 is a nice price, especially from Oregon. However, I think there is better PN out there at this price, which is why I wouldn't recommend this. That being said, this wine has a classic pinot profile; bright red fruit, touch of spice and a nice earthy quality. But the intensity was just not there, resulting in an imbalanced wine, with too much alcohol on the nose and no real lingering finnish.

Wine provided by a dinner guest.
