Dec. 12, 2005: WILLAKENZIE Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2003 (90 points, $23)

Crisp in texture, a bit raw around the edges but it's bursting with spicy blackberry and cherry flavors, hinting at an herbal note as the finish sails on. Drink now through 2012. 5,745 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 10, 2005: ERATH Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Estate Selection 2002 (91 points, $30)
