LaVelle 2008 Matthew's Reserve Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

The winery notes that this is their first reserve quality Pinot Noir since 1998—a remarkable statement. It reaches for that extra something without blowing itself out of proportion, retaining the varietal elegance so nicely displayed in the regular 2008 bottling. This is bigger, tighter and harder—with more tannic weight—than that wine, and should be cellared while you drink up its stable mate. Paul Gregutt
