O'Reilly's Pinot noir 06,Just Out and THE DEAL
Avalon Wine

Pinot noir 2006 $14.35/$15.95


Here's a pretty fantastic harbinger of the 2006 vintage in Oregon:
O'Reilly's 2006 Pinot Noir!

Winemaker David O'Reilly says: "this is unequivocably my favorite O'Reilly's since I started making it in 1997. I loved the '98 and the '01, but this wine beats them all."

David describes the wine as "unctuous, fruity, and full bodied - an indicator of the 2006 vintage. The wine is fruit forward with a beautiful acidity, a wine that people could stock up on and put away for everyday drinking for the next 5-6 years."

David made the 06 Pinot from fruit sourced from a range of vineyards, including Kalita Vineyard, Columban Vineyard, Battle Creek Vineyard, and Amity Vineyard.

For those of you who have stocked up on this wine in past vintages, skip ahead to the ordering page -- you know this is an awesome value in Oregon Pinot.

But just in case, the wine opens with a lovely nose of dried lavender, rose petals, and crushed red fruit, with a slight gamey edge. On the palate it's red cherry and and raspberry, with strawberry notes that carry through to the finish. Soft tannins and mellow spice combine with good acidity to make this a superb value.
