LE2013 - Oregon Pinot Noir

Oregon Pinot Noir
Order by November 29th for March 2014

Willamette Valley, Oregon 
Stretching from the Columbia River in the north to Eugene in the south, the Willamette Valley is nestled between the Oregon Coast Range in the West to the Cascade Mountains along the Pacific Coast. The climate is mild with cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers, allowing delicate, aromatic grapes to flourish. 
Deep ruby with garnet highlights Oregon Pinot Noir as a poet rather than a linebacker, and its character is defined almost as much in the elisions between its delicate scents and ethereal aromas as it is from its rich fruit and finesse. Aromas of red cherry, bright raspberry and strawberry give way to the delicate scent of violets, and the tannins are lustrously smooth and full on the palate. 
The delicacy of this wine allows it to pair with subtle dishes, from the classic Boeuf Bourgignon to game, roast turkey, pan-seared salmon and rich fish such as cod. 

Sweetness: Dry 
Body: Medium 
Alcohol: 13%
