2010 Broadley Pinot Noir Estate
Ruby-red. Pungent aromas and flavors of raspberry, bitter cherry, spicecake and rose. Silky and suave on entry, then chewier in the middle, offering sweet red fruit flavors and a subtly perfumed quality. Finishes sappy and long, with silky tannins and lingering spiciness. 90 points

Our Estate bottling shows the power of our site. Composed of a variety of blocks containing older and newer vines, it represents a cross-section of the flavors producted by our warmer version of the Willamette Valley's "cool" climate - and at a price that allows a larger number of consumers to experience the "Broadley difference."
Estate Tasting Notes
The aromas are focused and appealingly creamy notes of raspberry and cherry fruit. The same fruitiness is apparent on the tongue, with a bright, and fresh edge to the cherry and black raspberry flavor concentration. There is also a nice sweetness to the fruit, and hints of dried herbs, a touch of minerality, and notes of dried wood that add depth and complexity.
