[92 pts Wine Enthusiast "Peppery herbal notes populate the nose, leading into flavors of brambly red fruits. The wine gathers strength on the midpalate, finishing with a flourish of strawberry preserves. There's a touch of rhubarb pie and a dusting of cocoa in the mix as well, and for an Oregon Pinot Noir made in such quantities (more than 10,000 cases) it offers exceptional depth and density."
From whiskey to wine, the United States is quickly becoming one of the premier countries for a variety of styles and categories of alcohol. From Napa Cabernets, to Kentucky Bourbon, to craft beer, gin and vodka, the list of exceptional style and quality continues to impress the most discerning palates.
Oregon is recognized as one of the premier wine growing regions in the world. It is best known for its world-class Pinot Noir, grown predominantly in the Willamette Valley. There, Pinot Noir tends to take a bit of Burgundy's and California's best attributes: a bit of the dry, mineral driven notes of Burgundy with the ripe cherry and spice flavors of California. Neither overpowering the other, Oregon Pinots are recognized as some of the finest being produced today.
In addition to Pinot Noir, Oregon produces excellent whites such as Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris and even Gewürztraminer.
