Great Northwest Wine says: "Pinot Noir 115 is one of five clones from the Dijon Experimental Station in France that have been extensively planted in Oregon's Willamette Valley during the past several years.

It is seen as a version of Pinot Noir that tends to be a bit less expressive than, say, 113. But that certainly is not the case with this superb example from Erath. This offers intense aromas of fresh toffee, cherry pie with vanilla ice cream, pomegranate and cinnamon. On the palate, it shows tremendous depth of flavor, including notes of pomegranate, cranberry, cedar and spice. Its acidity and modest tannins are perfectly balanced with all the flavor.

This earned our top "Outstanding" rating in a blind tasting of Oregon Pinot Noirs. 139 cases made. Alc. 13% - Great Northwest Wine

2009 Vintage

2009 Wine Spectator - Polished, with a light burr of tannins around a juicy and distinctive core of red berry, beef carpaccio and floral flavors, persisting impressively on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2019. - H.S.

2005 Vintage Tasting Notes

The Erath Prince Hill Pinot noir 05 has complex layers that challenge the senses with vanilla, caramel and roasted coffee beans. Marionberry Pie flavors punctuate the rich, weighty and firm tannins. A powerful, yet elegant Pinot that grows in complexity the longer it sits in the glass. Drink from 2008 through 2016. - Gary Horner
