Monday night and opened another Pinot from Oregon, the 2015 Willamette Valley Vineyards Estate Pinot Noir. If I am going to drink Pinot my first thought is always to Oregon and the Willamette Valley. Very consistent and true to the veriatal, always clean, fresh and pleasing to the palate.

On the nose is very clean, cherry, raspberry, sweet strawberry, vanilla, smoke, wet leaves, and dusty soil.

On the palate there is tart cherry, raspberry, cranberry, a good mineral note, floral notes, spice, light cinnamon and earth.

This wine is medium bodied with medium + tingly acidity and medium fine tannin that leads to a medium to plus pleasing finish. Have a great week and continue being safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

A good Oregon Pinot Noir is hard to beat and this wine is a great example. Elegant red fruits, touch of mushroom with balanced acidity. Bottle did not last long at the wine tasting.

Alluring aromas raspberries, cranberries and bright red fruit with highlights of clove, anise and white pepper. Perfect amount of earthiness blended with lovely, zippy acidity and well integrated tannins that are smooth and mouthwatering. Beautifully balanced. Pure bliss.

A bit fruity for a Pinot, but not bad.
