Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2011 REX HILL Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a perfect Oregon Pinot Noir color: beautiful, dark and brilliant burgundy red from the center to the rim. When first poured, intense aromatics of wet stones, black cherries, ripe raspberries, cassis, tobacco and forest floor notes jump from the glass. After some time, the wine opens and deepens revealing notes of iris, cinnamon, spice and huckleberries. In the mouth, the attack opens with red fruit flavors and minerals which transform into darker fruit flavors as the wine moves along the palate. Firm ripe tannins and a rich texture characterize the long finish with lingering flavors of red fruits and wet stones. Although the 2011 REX HILL Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is drinking well now, it has the focus, balance and intensity to age and become more complex over the next 20 years.
