Twitter Taste Live Microblogging Pictorial

We stayed in last Saturday night and opened 3 bottles of west coast Pinot Noir along with a few dozen other TTL participants. The first bottle was an Oregon Pinot from WillaKenzie Estate Winery. Some people at the 2006 and some the 2007. We had the 2007.

Rather than summarize the tasting notes, I thought it would be fun to post this "pictorial" of the notes we tweeted on Saturday night during the event! (some will say I'm lazy, but really I'm an innovator!) ;)

There was a lot of talk about oak and pepper:

The following tweets were after coming back to the WillaKenzie after completing one round of the three Pinot line-up:

WillaKenzie is a Burgundy style Pinot Noir produced on the west coast of the United States. It was actually the least popular in the TTL tasting. The other two were from California and were a little sexier, but I think the WillaKenzie represented a, perhaps slightly austere, but classic high-toned Pinot Noir.
