Round 4 of speed dating tasting brings us another OR Pinot Noir, woo hoo, the 2009 Johan Nils Reserve Pinot Noir! This wine retails for $45 and can be found mostly in Portland and at the winery, with some distribution in FL, WI, WA, MN, and a few others. Sniffing the wine I am getting spice and pepper notes with black raspberry and cherry. Nice structure on the palate with bright red fruit, good acidity and a smooth, lingering finish.
Drink with some steelhead trout and enjoy.
