2010 not the year for Oregon Pinot?

Tasted a few 2010 Pinots the other day. Spoke to others who also tasted the wines, and the majority (including me) thought the wines were thin and sharp. French in style but not close to the "Oregon standard" for Pinot Noir.

I don't necessarily blame the winemaker. It was a brutal year for red anything in NW Oregon.

Interestingly, the 2010 NW Oregon whites are turning out delightful! Get some and see what I mean.
