Domaine Drouhin Willamette Valley

Pinot Noir, 2006

USA Oregon

Willamette Valley 75cl

I really like 2006 as a vintage, and this is another winner. Established by the Drouhin's of Burgundy in the 1980's, the first vintage was 1988. They have great vineyards and great facilities, all round very impressive. This is even better than the fabulous 2005, with a lovely varietal perfumed nose of ripe cherry, raspberry, spice and some creamy oak. Classic Oregon spicy style with red and black fruits, spice, nutmeg, clove and lovely oak - really good. It's got some tannin but especially with food this is masked. The sweet fruit is really appealing. Will make excellent drinking over the next 5 years.
