Tart cherry with underbrush and some herbal notes though not unripe or stemmy. Racy acidity demands food like roast chicken or turkey.

Pinot Noir food pairings: lamb chop casserole, stuffed breast of veal, roast chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I quite enjoyed the taste of this Northern Oregon Pinot Noir. Pretty fresh picked strawberries linger on the nose with some sour cherry and dried herbs on the second pass. Bright acidity and smooth tannins make this a perfect everyday summertime red.
Tasted: August 2016
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Here we have a fruit forward Pinot with dominant cherry and raspberry notes on the front. On the back end, after some aerating, you start to note some savoury note. The palate is a whole other ballgame, however. High tangy acidity, medium tannins, and savoury dried herb notes dominate the palate. Still, an easy drinking light bodied fall wine. Pair with 'girls night in' and a scrumptious charcuterie platter. Tasted Aug 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Oregon's Umpqua Valley was created by the collision of three mountain ranges: the Klamath, the Cascade and the Coastal. The resulting network of hills and valleys contains some 150 different soil types. Pinot Noirs from this area are known for their refreshing acidity and bright red berry fruit flavours. - Community Wine Reviews
