Willamette Valley Vineyards, Willamette Valley – Oregon, Pinot Noir 2007 The smell of cherries and their expression in a freshly baked pie fill the glass. In the mouth the red fruits continue with an accent of oak and the texture is supple. This is an elegant Pinot Noir, where the flavors are enhanced by acidity and no single note is overpowering. While I would enjoy this with some grilled salmon it is quite lovely on its own.
The wine was aged in French oak, 20% of it new from Allier. Cellared and bottled in Turner 13% available for $25 at the winery, a media sample. Willamette Valley
