    This is a nice traditional pinot that drinks above its price (<$20). Good Willamette Valley pinots are usually a lot more $$$, but this has mostly sourced grapes (25% from Domaine Drouhin) and is DD's value/entry label. Earthy, mineral, cherry/rasb, not too sweet.

    Went to my first blind tasting through a local som guild meet up. Had a lovely variety of testable reds, eleven in total with two "bonus" wines. I really enjoyed the experience of challenging my conception of gamay, rioja and napa cab. What a lovely way to spend a Thursday!

    How was the Lytton? I'm trying to hold mine for a few years

    Also, the Produttori should have been really good- they didn't bottle the singe vineyards in '12, and so included the juice in the base barbaresco (at about 1/2 the price)

    Don't they stop aging once in the bottle? Or am I confusing them with scotch?

    Wines slowly oxidize. Scotch basically stops aging due to he high alcohol %

    No bricking but very obvious thinning to the rim. Nice garnet, not dark. Tart cherry, bit of a dried fruit component, something nicely floral, and black pepper.
