Natalie's Score: 91/100

Love Domaine Drouhin's Cloudline Pinot Noir. So elegant with ripe dark cherry, raspberry, smoky herb flavours, velvety tannins and vibrant on the palate. The Drouhin family of Burgundy fame know a thing or two about great Pinot Noir. A great PN from the Willamette Valley for less than $20!

Pinot Noir food pairings: roast turkey or chicken, rabbit fricassee, grilled beef flat iron steak.

Terrific Turkey Wine

Perry rated this wine as 92/100
Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Plenty to enjoy here. This pinot noir's captivating scents of fresh cherry, potting soil and spice followed through to a mid-weight body marked with silky tannins and splendid structure. Long red fruited finish, too. Delicious. Crafted from pinot noir grown in Oregon’s renowned Willamette Valley. Drink now to 2023. Enjoy.

Cloudline 2018 Pinot Noir is an elegant Willamette Valley PN. Medium-bodied and dry with ripe dark cherry, plum, crushed raspberry and dark chocolate flavours on the palate with a mouth-watering food-friendly finish. Enjoy with roast duck, goose or turkey. Produced by Dom. Drouhin. Excellent and excellent value as well under $20. - Community Wine Reviews

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

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.
