WillaKenzie Estate Emery Pinot Noir, 2006

In my previous note, I compared the Quinto do Crasto from Portugal with a fine Oregon Pinot Noir. Having tasted it side by side with this WillaKenzie Emery Vineyard Pinot from Oregon, I take it all back. While the Portuguese wine is very good, it has nothing to match the depth, complexity and elegance of this fine Oregon Pinot Noir.

Medium light. Wild cherries, strawberries, pomegranate, forest floor. Flavors that reverberate. More ripeness and warmth on the mid-palate than I have found in other WillaKenzie Pinots, but that's alright with me. Remarkable depth and a finish that lasts at least 45 seconds. No comparisons necessary. This is fine wine.
