2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

New York Times' Eric Asimov ranked this wine #3 in their Top Ten 2008 Oregon Pinots today 1-17-2011. He called it "lively, structured Adelsheim Willamette Valley..."

"This longtime Oregon name offered its best releases in years with the 2008 vintage, showing a coiled-up power at low alcohol levels (13.5 percent or less). This more affordable blend is taut with leather and huckleberry aromas. As it unwinds, a darker mineral edge will provide a great underpinning to ripe fruit. The 2008 Elizabeth's Reserve ($50) is even more dramatic and unique, with edgy blue fruit flavors, great acidity and classic dried-leaf accents." - Jon Bonne, SF Chronicle

The Adelsheim Pinot noir Willamette Valley - "The result is this elegant, light-bodied wine with red cherry, spicy and dusty mineral aromas and raspberry and cherry flavors, layered with wood spice and smoke. It's kept taut with crisp acidity, finishing with smooth tannins." - Dallas Morning News - 4-15-10

The Adelsheim Pinot noir Willamette Valley 08 displays red fruit and dark cherry characters, both in the nose and on the palate. Wild cherry and juicy raspberry flavors intermingle with hints of spice. Pair this fruit-forward, satin-textured beauty with salmon or ahi, veal or pork, poultry (think duck) and hearty vegetarian entrees.
