2006 Cooper Mountain, Pinot Gris, Reserve, Willamette Valley, Oregon, $15, 4,250 cases. This straw-gold wine radiates aromas of melons, figs and tropical fruit. Crisp, viscous and full on the entry, with layers of fruit mirroring the nose; 90/91.
2006 Cooper Mountain, Pinot Noir, â€˜Mountain Terroirâ€™, Willamette Valley, Oregon, $45, 110 cases. For fans of Oregon Pinot on the elegant side, this medium-bodied wine is just the ticket. Aromas of red cherries, earth and vanilla continue on to the palate. Bright acids and silky tannins make it hard to leave this one in the cellar; 91/91.
A nice surprise.
