Review:

A load of Pinot for the money. This "everyday" bottling from Witness Tree's estate vineyard is quite the little big-man. Bursting with bushels of red and black berries on the nose which expand further on the palate intertwining with a layer of sandalwood, Eola Hills spice and dark cherry. The finish weaves together refreshingly, making for an easy-drinking young wine that begs to be cracked.

Previous vintage notes: The 2011 Chainsaw presents aromas of fresh berries, dried herbs and barnyard. It maintains a pure, clean mouth feel with a core of fresh red fruits. Ripe strawberries, bing and black cherries, along with subtle notes of currant are accentuated by more herbal nuances such as thyme, savory and sweet marjoram. Quite light and lively now, the 2011 Chainsaw will continue to flesh-out and broaden within the coming months. It is an ideal pairing with a multitude of cheeses, roasted game birds or grilled, flaky fish. - the winery

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

Produced from entirely estate grown fruit, it is made from lots in the cellar that are selected for early drinkability. Densely colored in the glass, the wine offers a delightful nose full of red fruits and spice. On the palate it is medium bodied and offers lovely fruit flavors that are balanced by a kiss of well-integrated French oak, tannin, and acidity. The finish lingers on. - the winery
