01 The Eyrie Vineyards, Oregon Pinot Noir

This wine makes it easy to assume that all pinot noir is really just dark rose. The 01 Eyrie lacks substance, but seems to be a good marker for the weak 2001 vintage. The flavors of stewed cherry and strawberries are pure, but the muddled, yeasty nose of sulfur and bubblegum is nearly unpalatable. Transparent mouthfeel.
