Vintages Wine Panel: Label features Diana Lett by Ginny Adelsheim. Adelsheim’s intent with their non-vineyard-specific Pinot Noir is to blend fruit from throughout the Willamette Valley that unites all the strengths of the region, especially the fresh fruity flavors that typify Pinot in Oregon. By blending the wines from many of the region’s finest vineyards, winemaker Dave Paige is able to produce focused Pinots. My note: A vibrant and exotic pinot with notes of tart cherries and black plums.

Adelsheim Pinot Noir food pairings: grilled salmon, duck breast, stuffed veal tenderloin.

Reviews and Ratings

Rebecca rated this wine as 97/100 with the following review:

Light red, crisp and clean. Intensely floral, rose, lavender (possibly heather), strawberries and minerals. This wine is what I like to describe as "pretty", like a heavenly perfume.
Vera Czerny rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Beautiful light ruby color. Rich aroma of freshly crushed cherries and blueberries, mixed with oak spices and a tiny dust of cocoa. Just the right amount of acidity and soft tannins cause the desire for a second glass. Nice, long finish. Blending different flavors and styles of Pinot Noir as Adelsheim does, successfully competes with many single vineyard Pinot Noirs, carrying much higher price tag.

Light-medium body,
aged in oak

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
