Tasting notes: 2003 Benton Lane Pinot Noir

This Pinot hails from the Willamete Valley in Oregon. I have to say I liked this wine but it was one of my least favorite Oregon Pinots. I think the Firesteed has been my favorite so far.

nose: black plum, blackberries, blueberry muffins & cinnamon.

palate: blackberry & spice with a bright & snappy acidity. This filled out a lot while I was still drinking it. very nice tannins. a long vanilla finish wraps it all up.

    This is one of my favories of the Oregon Pinots.
    Lovely with some rosemary lab chops.
    To each, their own I guess.

    Don't get me wrong I liked it & it was a really good Pinot, I just like the Firesteed better. So far I have had awesome luck with all Oregon Pinots, I can't wait to try more,

    I'd love to know how it compared to the 2002, which I loved!
