New Arrivals: O’Reilly’s--A Great Oregon Pinot for
For those of you who have stocked up on this wine
in past vintages, stop reading and head to the store. But just
in case, the wine opens with a lovely nose of dried lavender, rose
petals, and crushed red fruit, with a slight gamey edge. On the palate
it's red cherry and raspberry, with strawberry notes that carry through
to the finish. Soft tannins and mellow spice combine with good acidity
to make this a superb value.
Winemaker David O'Reilly says: "this is unequivocally
my favorite O'Reilly's since I started making it in 1997. I loved the
'98 and the '01, but this wine beats them all."
David describes the wine as "unctuous, fruity, and full bodied -
an indicator of the 2005 vintage. The wine is fruit forward with a beautiful
acidity, a wine that people could stock up on and put away for everyday
drinking for the next 5-6 years."
