Duck Pond 2016 Pinot Noir is as delicious on the nose as it is on the palate with ripe dark cherry and berry aromas, ripe red cherry, black raspberry, savour spice and a kiss of smokiness on the palate. Finishes long and lovely.

Pinot Noir food pairings: veal chops, spiced duck breasts, pizza with anchovies.

Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Intense ruby red colour. Jammy black cherry aromas give way to soft oak and mild herbal undertones. Soft and approachable palate, dry with vibrant acidity and decent tannic structure. Modern and new world styling, this Pinot will complement duck l'orange or herbed pork tenderloin.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Garnet in the glass. This wine is still young and tight. Bright black cherry on the palate with high, chalky tannins. Needs time. Tasted April, 2018.
From Fries Family Cellars, Duck Pond 2016 Pinot Noir is a great value Oregon PN under $30. Nice layers of herbs on this red berry bright, blackberry and dark cherry dry red wine. Well-balanced fruit to acidity and with firm tannins. - Community Wine Reviews
