Erath Oregon 2008 Pinot Noir, $12.60-$18.00, 91 points, has a fine stained-glass (crystal-clear) ruby red with an orange hued appearance, and touches the glass wall clear. Red cherry, warm earth, and a floral hint, waft a very pleasant aroma.
A moderately smooth near medium body with bright acidity, a mild and trailing tannin, cola and copious red fruit flavors, near dry, deliciously balanced and refined, this is a sleeper, a keeper, as there will be life in this one for some time to come.
Finishes long on its juicy diminishing palate with a touch of its 13% alcohol and a hint of spice.
This Pinot Noir very well could be the star of the day; a best buy for The Thanksgiving Celebration. Time will tell, as I have another four weeks to explore the wonderful world of PN in New Hampshire.
I bought Erath Oregon 2008 Pinot Noir at the Londonderry Hannaford's Supermarket.
