Editors' Choice. . . It's beyond impressive that a wine sourced from 50 vineyards scattered throughout the state can be this good. It's all of Oregon in a single bottle, rounded in feel, lightly spiced & showing fresh cranberry & cherry flavors.
From the Winemakers' Website: The 2016 A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir highlights the ripeness & concentration of the vintage with an uncommon grace & style. The compelling nose opens with vibrant notes of blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, raspberry, strawberry, red current, plum, thyme, sage & baking spices. The scents are lifted by lingering rose petal & violet aromas, while deeper notes of graphite, leather, & pipe tobacco bring depth. On the palate, the wine echoes the initial aromatics with juicy flavors of blue & red fruits & hints of secondary flavors like chocolate malt, duke de leche, coffee & a bit of earthiness. As the wine continues across the palate, it grows in breadth & richness with a density & concentration that is impressive. Supple tannins & refreshing acidity give shape & structure to the weight of the fruit harmonizing nicely & leading to a long finish ending on flavors of blue fruits & spice. Soft, inviting, & light on its feet, the 2016 A to Z Pinot Noir is built for midterm aging & will drink great over the next 5 years. PAIRS WELL WITH: A pretty, versatile wine that will pair neatly with most proteins cooked in a wide variety of styles, as well as earthy, & rustic vegetables, & bright-red to black fruits like cherry, cranberry, or plum. SPECIFIC: Fuller-bodied seafood like Salmon, Halibut, or Trout. All manner of pork. Grilled meats & vegetables from chicken to venison. Braised meats & stews, Root vegetables, & mushrooms, especially mushrooms. Learn to like duck. Duck is fantastic with Pinot Noir. Make a cherry gastrique & add it to the duck. You will become the food & wine hero of the universe. SAUCES: Cream/ butter-based, fonds, reductions, gastrique, fumes, roux-based, tomato-based
