Abbelone Pinot Noir at TLC

Last night I had the occasion to taste, for the second time, an excellent Oregon Pinot Noir, the 2008 Abbalone. The winery is as yet to have a real tasting room but they swear they will at some point in the future. In the mean time, Tuesday evening at Travel Lane County's Adventure Center will have to do. Angelena Ferry, the owner, showed up with what she thought would be enough wine. However, upon recalculation , and the fact that it was all sold in an hour, she said that perhaps she should have brought a bit more...
The wine, after it opened up (this one takes about an hour), was rich and deep, with all sorts of black fruit and hints of jam. There was a bit of earth and leather peeking around the edges and some plum and strawberry on the finish. All in all a wonderful wine. I enjoyed learning that they are the closest vineyard that makes it's own wine to Eugene.
I plan on a trip out to visit soon and hope she has enough for me;)
Here is Logan with Angela and an empty bottle of really good wine.
