Willamette Valley Vineyards Whole Cluster Fermented Pinot Noir 2020
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
|Brand||Willamette Valley Vineyards|
Characterized by the winemaking process that focuses on pure fruit expression, the wine opens with aromas of blackberry, cherry and raspberry accented by subtle savory spice and vanilla. Indicative of the warm and even growing season, the palate is rich, coating and leads to juicy flavors that mirror aromas with the addition of dark chocolate and mocha that flow into soft, round finish with balancing acidity. Our most versatile Pinot Noir for food pairing, this wine lends itself well to sweet and tangy BBQ dishes, sushi, spicy Asian and Indian dishes, wood- red flatbreads, gourmet burgers and salmon. Try serving slightly chilled on a warm summer evening.
Fruity and forward, this bursts forth with candied cherries, marionberry jam and blueberry compote. Behind that wall of fruit are light acidity and just enough phenolic punch to keep the flavors ringing through the finish.
