Review:

Aromas of crushed cherry, spiced rose petal, a hint of toasted vanilla and savory notes. The delicate mouth shows Italian plum with licorice and a velvety texture finishing bright with fine tannins.. - Luisa Ponzi, winemaker

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

This perfumed nose shows vanilla, spice and red fruit leading to a mouth of warm spice notes and blueberry. The finish is long with soft tannins. - Winemaker Luisa Ponzi

Luisa on the vintage: A winemaker is lucky to receive a handful of really magical vintages in a lifetime. 2008 is one of those vintages. In the Willamette Valley we started the season two weeks late due to a cool spring, which delayed budbreak. A cool season throughout June and into July persuaded us to bring already low crop levels even lower to ensure ripening for what was shaping up to be a very cool vintage.

To our surprise and excitement, the sun came out in August and persisted into September and October with a gorgeous Indian summer. The daytime temperatures remained high while the nighttime temperatures dropped into the 40s equating to ripe, beautiful fruit with retained natural acidity. We began picking in October and finished in the first part of November. Long hang time for the vines and the luxury of picking when we wanted made this vintage exceptional!

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

This is Ponzi's good value, everyday Pinot noir, medium bodied and ready to drink. Seattle PI says: "It's among the most charming pinots I've had recently, with its fresh and lively aromas and flavors of red fruit, spices and earth."
