2016 Rogue Valley Pinot Noir
90 points - Editor's Choice - Wine Enthusiast
This pretty, affordable Oregon Pinot Noir brings purple fruit character and plenty of appeal. Soft on entry, it loosens up on the palate to deliver a blast of blueberry jam and French oak flavors (though its oak aging is unspecified), finishing with a chocolate note recalling a Hershey's kiss. This is a good candidate for immediate summertime enjoyment.
Bright cranberry in hue, our 2015 Rogue Valley Pinot Noir has a characteristic heady perfume of Bing cherries, red plums, floral nectar, and pawpaw. The palate has melded flavors of cherries, currant, cranberry gratin, dried strawberries, and barrel spice with a persistent finish reflective of the vintage.
