In the glass, this Oregon Pinot has a bright purple center with a red-raspberry halo and bricking edges.
When I close my eyes and give the wine a sniff, I am mushroom hunting in a bing cherry orchard…. odd I know – but this things got a sort of earthy brightness on the nose and IT WORKS…..
In the mouth my tongue hit with lush cranberries. The mid-palate is similar to the nose with a shot of forrest floor, bright cherries, and mushrooms that lead all the way through and into the long – acidic – but soft finish…………….
This is a pretty decent little Pinot – Its got nice acid, there’s some lushness, and even a bit of gaminess….
I’d call it a BUY and with its versatility, you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t like it…. go grab yo-self a couple bottles!
