02 Stafford Hill, Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Cuvee LP

Thin, stemmy, and aroma-less at first, this is a fun wine to taste develop in the decanter over half an hour. The broadened flavors are of raspberry, some black cherry, sweet grapes, and vanilla. Though the aroma opens up to musky dark berries and black licorice, it's ultimately a bit too prickly to grasp. Overall, the acid and medicinal tannins keep this beneath the bar for 02 Oregon, but it is a lighter effort in which some will discover much more.
