Review:

Rich, big Pinot. Very ripe, unusually full bodied for the vintage. A blend of cuvees from Vidon, Monks Gate, Anderson Family, and Grand Moraine vineyards. A special selection of what John thinks is best and most representative of the vintage.

Previous Vintage Tasting Notes

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

The Grochau Des Amis Pinot noir 06 has an impressive, lovely nose of cherry, white pepper, and spice. The cherry notes are complex, ranging from tart pie cherry through the softly flavored Rainier to the juicy big black bing cherry. Flavors reiterate the scent, with lots of sweet red cherry and raspberry, and white pepper notes. Overall, a very pleasant Pinot suitable for savoring on its own or pairing with many foods. - Avalon Wine

Wine Spectator's Matt Kramer, writing in the Oregonian, says: "like many of the best 2006 Oregon pinot noirs, this is a rich, lush wine plumped with powerful blackberry and black cherry scents and flavors. But it is not a bruiser. Grochau pinot noirs all seem to retain a certain tenderness in style that serves the cause of Oregon pinot noir especially well. This is impressive, even dramatic, Oregon pinot noir that allies substantial, pure pinot fruit with real finesse."
