Pinotguy 91 Points!
Le Cadeau winery does the wine drinking public a favor every year. They produce a reasonably priced wine, designed primarily for glass pours at restaurants. But if I ask really nicely, they let me buy some for the Oregon Pinot Noir Club.It used to be that Jolete was seperate from another bottling called "La Verre" or "the glass." These days, they have folded the two bottlings into one. This was a May Premium Club selection.
The wine shows more style and purity than is common at this price point. Designed to sell by the glass, it's juicy and forward while still showing excellent intensity and persistence on the palate. The fruit flavors are plum and blackberry, with juicy red fruit highlights. It's a bona-fide bargain for current consumption.
