-2009 Oregon Pinot noirs

2009 Vintage Oregon Pinot noirs

The 2009 vintage of Oregon wine is forward, round, lush, and popular. Willamette valley winemakers describe the harvest and the wines:

"The lush, ripe wines will probably be received quite enthusiastically if the past is any guide." - Dick Shea, Shea Vineyard/ Shea Wine Cellars

"In general, Pinot noirs will be flashy and spectacular this year..." - Harry Peterson-Nedry, Chehalem

We ended up with that rare combination of excellent quality and quantity." - Ted Casteel, Bethel Heights

"I think they will be magnificently intriguing wines- comely, gregarious, and very intriguing. Overall quality should be superb". - Jesse Lange, Lange Estate Winery
