Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Candied black cherry on the nose and palate that evolves to include some hints of barnyard. Smooth and well balanced. Good acidity with a medium finish. Pair with duck confit. Very good value. Tasted Dec 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Great value for this Pinot Noir from Oregon. Aromas of red cherry, cranberry, with hints of bramble, leather, and black pepper. Medium bodied with vibrant acidity, fresh and ripe berry flavours, and some earthy, spicy notes on the finish. Enjoy with pork or lentil dishes.
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A good-value Oregon Pinot Noir, this medium-bodied wine pours pale garnet with aromas of cherry, spices and earthiness. Dried berries on the palate with a long, spicy finish. Decant this wine to serve with lamb or beef, or age for several more years.
Tasted December, 2019.
Fantastic value under $20 on this elegant Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley wine region in Oregon. Brella 2014 is juicy with black cherry, earthy florals, fresh mushrooms, cedar and white pepper spice flavours on the palate. Lovely silky texture on the palate. Enjoy now or hold for three years in cellar. - Community Wine Reviews
