06 Firesteed Pinot Noir

Ambrose had me round to tea. I was very glad to be invited over as our kitchen is currently in a state of pigsty chaos . We are as a result unable to feed ourselves anything warm.
We had a nice evening, and i picked up some things from the supermarket on the way over.
Bought this bottle from a great wine shop in Leeds.
As you will find out in this blog, I have an affection for Pinot Noir and this was my first taste of a wine from Oregon.
Oregon is on a favourable lattitude for growing Pinot Noir, just the same as both Burgundy in France and Central Otago, New Zealand.


Firesteed pinot noir 2006

Lovely light red colour in the glass,
soft red fruits on the nose with a gentle coffee aroma. On the palate, the wine is soft with
balance raspberry and cherry notes and a lovely balanced liquourice savour nature.
Excellent, gold quality Oregon wine.
94/100
