Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Smooth as silk pajamas. Wrap up your senses in the succulent Pinot from Oregon. Pretty pale ruby colour with clean aromas of Bing cherry, raspberry, strawberry, vanilla, pepper, cedar and floral. A bright palate of tart cherry, cranberry, black pepper,minerality, black earth. This wine is mildly tannic and made to be enjoyed now. A very good cherry cola finish.
Can easily be enjoyed on it's own or pair with grilled salmon or tuna, seafood, turkey, pizza.
Tasted: March 2015
art cherries and berries with lots of acidity. This smooth, supple, juicy Oregon Pinot Noir is medium-bodied. OTHER: Who says great Pinot Noir has to be expensive? A to Z Wineworks began as a partnership of Oregon wine industry veterans who knew how to find the grapes and make the wine to please both the palate and the pocketbook. My tasters enjoyed raspberry and cherry fruit with hints of mineral and citrus, finishing with earthy complexity that accompanies the full scope and breadth of the Thanksgiving table.

The back label reads aristocratic wines at demographic prices. Lots of acidity on the palate and finish of this Oregonian Pinot Noir. - Community Wine Reviews
