2017 Willamette Valley
Here is what we said last year as it all translates the same for this vintage:
A quality Oregon Pinot Noir for under $10? To say its unheard of is no exaggeration. This is not some giant producer either. There are just over 900 cases made of this inexpensive gem. This is a light to medium bodied style that is the perfect compliment to the hot August days and nights ahead. Would not be a bad idea to throw this in the fridge for 20 minutes before serving as light chill adds another layer of refreshment.
The wine has a smooth-round texture of cherry and raspberry that lingers on the pallet. This wine goes beautifully with salmon, all fish and shell fish. Pair it with pheasant, duck, and venison.
