Natalie's Score: 90/100

Loving this saucy Pinot from Oregon. Nervy edge acidity and 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

Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a delicious offering from Oregon! And quite popular, as evidenced by the limited quantities remaining following its recent Vintages release. Its light-bodied texture, mouthwatering acidity and fresh red fruit flavours make this an incredibly food-friendly wine, perfect for any dish from short ribs to salmon. Add a hint of smoke and baking spice to the mix and you'e got a winning combination and the perfect hostess gift. Get the whole story at:
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A fruit forward berrylicious Pinot. Stewed cherry, raspberry and stemmy earthy underbrush standout along with faint lingering spice flavours on the palate (cardamom and cinnamon). Enjoy this light bodied Pinot with smoked ham grilled cheeses. Tasted April 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Underwood (2015) is a Pinot Noir from Oregon's Umpqua valley. Great value at less than $25. Tart Cherry and cedar spice finish the wine. There is a bright acidity on this wine that will cut through and rich chicken or turkey dish. 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. Drink now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

The Financial Times of London

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.
