Picked this up while tasting at the always amazing Mark Ryan tasting room in Woodinville. The Megan Anne Cellars label is a sister winery to Mark Ryan that specializes in Willamette Valley vineyards, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This Pinot is a blend hailing from Dundee Hills and Eola-Amity sub-appellation AVAs. Willamette Valley AVA is the largest AVA is Oregon, recognized in 1984, and renowned for it's distinctive Pinot Noirs. Pinot Noir is a thin-skinned grape that readily takes on the characteristics of where it grows - the Oregon grapes favoring soil, barn, and tart fruit overly their assertive fruit forward California cousins. Opened this and loved it, though rated it after 24 hours being opened, (with a a notable fall off on fruit and spice). Would still recommend to anyone wanting a starter PNW Pinot. ~$40 | #markryanwinery #meganannewinery #oregonpinotnoir

On the eyes: Deep, Med+ concentration red-purply color, bright, med+ stain, med tears, no gas/floc.

On the nose: Some funkiness that revolves around rhubarb, pomegranate, and chalkiness. Med Alcohol.

On the tongue: Med tannin, med+ acid, med alcohol, med body, tight drinker. Rhubarb, cranberry, unripe strawberry, wrapped in a funky little mineral finish. Rated after 24 hours vacuumed in the fridge - was brighter, spicer upon first opening.

Kinda salty and peppery. Cherry notes for certain. This is a very nice Pinot.
