Lots of tart cherry and wild berry with racy acidity yet not too herbal. Pair with grilled chicken.

|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Castle Rock's Pinot comes from Oregon's Willamette Valley, which has become world renowned for their cool climate Pinot. Fantastic rich red berries, vanilla, and spice. Delicious fruit and spice on the long finish makes this a great value priced wine that's sure to please. Very impressed! Tasted July 2016. 91 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

Bravo Oregon State! Here we have a fine cool climate Pinot at a steal! The nose is showing tons of fresh red cherry, cranberry some baking spice, and earthy notes. This is how I like my new world pinot - to emulate the best of worlds - ripe fruit, tart fruit and earthy funk. The palate recalls all these classic notes from the nose, and showing a nice structure of moderately chewy tannins, high acidity and terrific fruit concentration. It is so easy drinking and makes a fantastic pair with beef chili nachos. Tasted July 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

Tasted April1 2017.very light pink on the rim light red in the middle. I can see my 2 fingers through the wine. On the nose cherry. On the palate more cherry and spice notes. Medium mouth feel. Good acidity and soft tannin. The wine finishes with cherry and spice for about 30 seconds.
This is an easy drinking Pinot. I like it better with a little bit of a chill. I am drinking it on its own. I would pair it with oven roast chicken. Or maybe a turkey burger. Good value paid $19 US dollars in New York City.
|We love Pinot Noir and we love Washington's Willamette Valley Castle Rock (2014) PN. So fresh and lively with red cherry, red berries, good acidity and fine, velvety tannins. Lovely. Certainly, a good food match would be lamb lollipops, but this could easily be had on its own to appreciate the true elegance of this wine. - Community Wine Reviews|
