Belle Vallée 2004 Grand Cuvée Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

This opens with tart, tight leaf and beetroot flavors, which overlay quite soft, round and riper fruit. The integration of earthy tannins with the fruit is a little disjointed; what shows most clearly are the leafy, herbal plant flavors. There's plenty of stuffing here; perhaps this is one of those wines that will warrant a higher score with additional bottle age. Paul Gregutt
