02 J. Christopher, Willamette Valley Pinot Noir "Sandra Adele"

Sandra's a starchy wine, with the smell and flavor of shiitake and porcini risotto. Make some and you will know what I mean. There is a delicacy and force here, like truffled scallops, that together say Burgundy has come to Oregon. Raspberry liqueur (or is there such a thing as raspberry oil?) and grape soda flavors frame a purely unctuous finish of brulee, toasted macadamia, hazelnut, mint chocolate chip, and citrusy old Barolo. Jay, your mother must be so beautiful.
