Our first Oregon Pinot Noir release in 19 years had to be good. Our 2018 Oregon Pinot Noir is immensely drinkable at this stage. This young Pinot is complete, supple and delicious now, but will continue to improve for at least 10 years. It is loaded with aromas of ripe berries, both blackberries and strawberries. The underlying power and complexity are “under the surface” currently, but will be apparent soon. The 25% of stem inclusion gives the wine a nice spice note, not seen in Oregon Pinots. The spice complements the barrel component to make a seamless, rich, mouth-watering wine. A natural pairing of salmon and Oregon Pinot is easy. But, for a real treat go for duck.
