2006 St. Innocent "Anden Vineyard" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1041489 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2006 Pinot Noir Anden Vineyard is a powerful wine with layered flavors, an impressive structure, gobs of blue and black fruits, and a very long, fruit-filled close. Give it 2-3 years and drink it from 2010 to 2018.  (10/2008)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep red. Seductively perfumed aromas of black raspberry, cherry compote, incense and smoky minerals. Fleshy red and dark berry flavors display liqueur-like depth and are braced by a slow-building mineral quality. Gains power and sweetness on the finish, which is sappy, seductively spicy and very long. This is delicious now but deserves at least another five years of patience.  (6/2009)

K&L Notes

Going out on your own can be scary, but ultimately it can be the most rewarding thing, too. The Anden Vineyard, overlooking the Willamette Valley from the hills west of Salem, Oregon, used to be part of Seven Springs Vineyard. It was divided off in 2001. The results are stellar, particularly in 2006. Lush red and black fruit aromas and flavors are spiked with pepper and spice. The palate is broad and the tannins substantial, but they stand up to the powerful fruit. This is a big style of Pinot Noir that will cellar well for a decade or more.
