2007 Willakenzie Estate Terres Basses Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 750ml

Quick Overview

The 2007 Terres Basses displays dark ruby color with a slight purple hue that seems characteristic of this vintage. The complex bouquet offers rich, black fruit tones, then some earthiness, chocolate and intriguing hints of tangerine peel. Flavors follow the aromas with cherry, blackberry and blackcurrant notes creating initial sweetness that develops into a round, velvety palate impression and a long finish. Tannins are pronounced, but integrated and will resolve with time. The wine will improve for the next 2 to 3 years and cellar well for at least 8 to 10 years. Pair with lamb chops and flageolet beans, filet mignon in a red wine reduction, or a grilled Portobello mushroom risotto.

2007 Willakenzie Estate Terres Basses Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 750ml

The Terres Basses vineyard is the lowest block of the Estate vineyards, ranging in elevation from 320’ to 390‘. The soil composition of this parcel is quite different from the rest of the Estate and is a key contributor to the wine specificity. The vineyard was planted in 1997 to Dijon clones 113, 115. The rows are oriented north-south with an average density of 1750 plants per acre, and the vines are trained into an upright double guyot trellising system. This section of the vineyard does require a small amount of irrigation in the summer due to the structure of the soil.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 92

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2007 Pinot Noir Terres Basses Estate was aged in 50% new oak. Smoke, earth, mineral, and savory, spicy red fruit aromas lead to a wine with the most density and structure of the 2007 collection. Ripe, balanced, and light on its feet, this spicy, flavorful, already complex Pinot will evolve for 2-3 years and deliver pleasure from 2012 to 2022.
