Natalie's Score: 90/100
A full-bodied Pinot from Oregon, which is a rarity. Not as acidic either in style: richer and rounder with black cherry and some mocha from oak aging. Pair with grilled pork chops.
Pinot Noir food pairings: veal chops, grilled duck sausages, pork tenderloin, barbecued lamb sirloin.

|Andrea Shapiro - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This was quite nice! Medium plus aroma intensities of raspberry, tart cherry, smoked paprika, stemmy earth and a touch of coffee. In the mouth, medium plus flavour intensity of cherry, cranberry and smokey leather, high acidity and low tannins. Youthful, and fun. Pair with roast quail, dried cranberry hummus and pita, and trail mix.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Raspberry, floral, and smoke notes with some cherry cola on the palate. Good body and medium tannins on the finish. Tasted March 2018 and paired with turkey burgers.
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 57/100 with the following review:|
This wine is made by King Estates, an extremely reliable producer from Oregon. This wine was sourced from parcels all over Oregon, hence its general difference from straight-up Willamette. It was sourced from the expansive holding this company owns between the Cascade and Coastal mountain ranges.
Deeper blackish garnet to the core of this wine. Still quite bright at the edges.
Aromas of pot pourri, roses, black tea, cherry, blackberry, and cranberry.
The alcohol in this Pinot Noir is a bit higher than is generally expected in a Pinot Noir (almost 14%). It pushes the total experience of this wine into a North American, new world style - done with high-tech gizmos, like destemmers and stainless steel vats for temperature control. Someone who likes Cali or New Zealand will see this style as more recognizeable.
Gushy black and red fruit on top of an earthy, floral composure. Some leather, moderate tannins, and a firm finish accented with bitter chocolate.
Put this wone with a hearty fall soup, or maybe a spinach and garlic quiche.
|Acrobat is named for the winery's attempt to achieve balance in its wines. This wine is a full-bodied Pinot from Oregon with round, rich and ripe black cherry nose and flavours with a mocha finish from oak ageing. Pair with grilled pork chops. - Community Wine Reviews|
