2006 Amalie Robert Dijon Clones
Oregon / Willamette Valley
The 2006 Dijon Clones Pinot Noir is true to the soil and true to the vintage. Aromas of crushed wild raspberries, rose petals and nutmeg introduce a palate rich with Montmorency cherries and Oregon strawberries. The core of sweet fruit and underbrush is punctuated with dried lavender and cocoa. 90 POINTS, WINE ENTHUSIAST

2009 Carre Savigny-les-Beaune
France / Burgundy / Beaune
Ruby in color with aromas of black fruit, notes of candied fruit and violets. Full bodied.  Drink now or hold.

2010 Huber Pinot Noir Trocken
Germany / Baden
A stellar example of German Pinot Noir today,  Although its color is barely medium-ruby, this wine is substantial, solid, and mouthfilling — all this at the same time as it is charming and vibrant.  Aromas and flavors are mainly those of red berries — such as bright cranberry, wild strawberry, and tart cherry — with accents of fresh herbs and a vein of chalky minerality.  The taste is totally dry but richly fruity, with high acidity lending a depth of flavor, and firm tannins that in no way overpower the fruit.  The wine’s long, flavorful finish shows concentration and purity of fruit character.  The wine’s gentle, velvety texture is reminiscent of a Burgundy from the Cote de Beaune.
