Pinot Noir is the leading varietal in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Willamette Valley Vineyards Estate Pinot Noir 2017 exemplifies the “Oregon style” even with the vintage being the warmest on record. Complex aromas of black cherry, dried herbs, floral and spice create an alluring nose. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and flavors of blackberry, bergamot, anise and cedar. Exceptionally balanced with velvety tannins, lively acidity and a lingering finish.
