Wine Of the Week:
Willamette Valley Vineyards Whole Cluster Pinot Noir 2011
As refreshing as liquid fruit salad in a glass, this wine opens with vibrant and explosive aromas of cherry and raspberry that leap from the glass. Flavors mirror aromas of red and dark fruits, hibiscus and melon highlighted by leathery cigar and tobacco overtones. The mouthfeel is soft, juicy and well-rounded with fresh acidity. The velvety tannins focus on a silky mouthwatering finish, inviting the second sip. Meant to drink young.
