Cloudline Oregon Pinot Noir 2009

Clear, medium ruby red with a garnet rim. Clean, medium intensity red cherry and strawberry, with a bit of earthiness. Dry, medium acidity, and light tannins with a light-plus body. A bit of astringency and unwanted vegetal qualities in the mouth, overshadowing a straightforward blend of red fruit flavours. Not a strong finish, and overall nothing to get excited about. 13.5% alcohol. $30—decidedly overpriced—at Crosstown. See Dreyfus, Ashby & Co.
