Smooth and ripe, with a meaty edge to the blackberry and cherry flavors, turning toward dark chocolate as the finish lingers generously. On the nose you will find bright and youthful aromas of red cherry, red currant, chocolate and sweet spices such as clove, cinnamon and vanilla. These aromas echo in the generous mouthfeel with high-toned sweet spices finishing with nice acid and fine tannins.
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.
