An aromatic, pale ruby Pinot Noir with blue florals, red berry, cherry and spicy on the nose. Medium-bodied with juicy mouth-watering acidity, pair this PN with a grilled bavette steak. The winery's three iron-rich Tulatin vineyards are located on the iron rich volcanic slopes and sedimentary seabeds of the Willamette Valley.

Pinot Noir food pairings: grilled tuna with a pepper crust, grilled pork chops, lamb kabobs, roast veal.

Alana L rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

One of my weekly picks - tasted in vacation in Maine this week.

On the nose dark fruit, herbs, floral and spice. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and flavors of blackberry, bergamot, anise and cedar. Beautifully balanced with velvety tannins, good acidity and a lingering finish.

Paired beautifully with grilled salmon and shrimp by the seaside in Boothbay Harbour, Maine.
From the Willamette Valley, Oregon, Willamette Valley Vineyards Estate 2016 Pinot Noir has aromas of mocha and ripe red cherry on the nose. This is a juicy, medium-bodied red with dark cherry, blueberry, cake spice and earthy flavours on a smooth and silky palate. Enjoy now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews
