Oakridge Over the Shoulder Pinot Noir 2012

This is Oakridge's entry level range, and it's pretty damn fine particularly as it is hand picked and sourced from five vineyards.

A word I'd use to describe this wine is fleshy. The fruit delivered is just that. Dark cherries, some mushroomy composty action, dried herbs and what I can only nail down as stewed rhubarb. There's plenty going on, that's for sure.

With some texture in the mix, it's still bright with a soft, fine length.

Spot it under $20 and it's a no brainer.

Very good.
