2010 Longplay “Lia’s Vineyard” Pinot Noir

I’ve noted before how much I enjoy Longplay wines, which have built a fast reputation as an Oregon Pinot and Chard producer with stellar quality to price ratio. This is the first time I’ve had anything from 2010, however, and I was excited to see what they’ve done with their “entry-level” bottle in what some people are calling a stellar vintage.

Well, all I can say is there’s no let up in the quality. This is beautiful and true Oregon pinot. I don’t know what the oak treatment is here, but I’m guessing it’s minimal. And maybe it’s in my head, but I feel like there’s a really pleasant saline note to go along with the berry and earthy goodness.

This is really honest and delicious wine. All for something like $25.

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
