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

Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

a fully extracted example of Oregon PN. Lots of clean modern fruit with noted tannins. The tannins might turn someone off who expects a "drink now" PN but give this beauty some time in your stash and it will be a wine with beautiful aromas, flavours, and velvety textures. Drink from 2019 to 2023
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Floral and raspberry aromas with cherry, raspberry and earth notes on the palate. A lighter pinot that paired perfectly with cedar planked salmon.
Dan Carkner rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A brooding nose that calls for a cigar and a dock-side adirondack...
Pretty aromas of bright red currants and linzer torte countered by lush forest floor and cinnamon.
Ready to enjoy now with fall flavours of wild mushrooms, roasted root veg, and slow roasted meats.
This Oregon Pinot Noir from Union Wine Company Underwood (2015) is raspberry, and strawberry on the nose, dried herbs on the palate and finishes with zesty acidity. 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

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.
