Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Tart, tangy, medium body, balanced, integrating medium fine tannins. Plum, cherry, savoury, peppercorn. Paired well with roast chicken. Tasted 2015 vintage in May 2018. Good value.
Wine maker's notes : Left Coast's, dense and rich in color, Cali’s Cuvée Pinot Noir has plentiful aromatics including purple plum, blueberry, blackberry, white pepper and crushed dried herbs. A juicy mid palate with earthy, spicy and toasty flavors wrap up into a tight mineral texture and refined tannins.

The flagship Pinot Noir from Left Coast Cellars is a true snapshot of our terroir and a window to our estate, combining all the blocks and different clonal selections from our vineyard. Named in honor of Cali, our owners’ daughter, the wine displays bright red fruit flavors, and a freshness that can only be found in the Willamette Valley.
