Produced by a 10-year-old winery in McMinneville, just southwest of Portland, this wine is a classic example of what Oregon holds for pinot noir. You will usually pay twice the price of admission to get an Oregon wine this appealing. Real dedication shows through the layers of flavor, providing hope that Oregon will realize its potential and develop a compelling pinot at an affordable price.
We enjoyed this with a light summer supper of baked chicken, field peas, rice and tomatoes. But you could enjoy it with salmon, duck, dove or even rabbit. A very comfortable, medium-weight wine.
They produce a pinot blanc as well as several other pinot noirs, though we are not likely to see them here. But this is one to seek out. Give it about a 20-minute chill before serving.
Appearance: A medium ruby magenta with a clear rim.
Nose: Cranberries, raspberries and cherry compote and a little allspice.
Taste: Soft mouth feel, smooth tannins, good acidity and a long finish.
