On this the middle of the week I stopped into my store of choice to pick-up a couple bottles of wine, one for tonight and the other for more towards the weekend. I chose the 2015 Sineann Yates Conwill Vineyard Pinot Noir from the Yamhill-Carlton area of Willamette Valley, Oregon for this evening.

The nose at first was a bit muted and I thought it may be a bit to chilled so I let it set for awhile to let it warm a bit and open up. After about an hour it seemed to be much more revealing and the notes started to come, cherry, cranberry, strawberry, cola, vanilla, cinnamon, violet, smokey oak and earth.

At the first sip on the palate I can get cherry, cranberry, raspberry, spice, rosemary, violet, oak, which I think is a bit much but some may find to their liking, cola, wet leaves and earth.

This wine is medium to full bodied with medium acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead to a medium to long dark fruit finish. This pinot noir harkens more to a California Pinot from the RRV or Carneros than a Willamette Valley Pinot that I have come to appreciate. Well, we are making that downhill slide into the weekend so please be safe and enjoy the rest of your week. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
