A To Z Winery Pinot Noir Oregon 2015

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Tasting Notes: The generous 2015 vintage delivered rich, dark color to the 2015 A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir. Striking aromas of black cherries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries are overlaid with a cornucopia of spices. As the wine opens, aromas expand to include pipe tobacco, fennel and red currants. The palate initially mirrors the aromatics with complex, pure red and blue fruit flavors. As the wine moves across the palate, ripe, dusty tannins bracketed by juicy acidity give shape and definition to the powerful fruit flavors in harmony with a mineral quality, reminiscent of slate and graphite. The 2015 A to Z Pinot Noir is perhaps the most beautiful Pinot Noir we have made due to the perfect nature of the 2015 vintage in Oregon. While the stunning, complex, succulent 2015 A to Z Pinot Noir was built for near term drinking, this wine has great integrity and should have no problem aging for years to come.

A to Z Wineworks' partnership blends unique skills. Bill Hatcher brought an extensive background in strategy and finance to the Oregon wine industry and Domaine Drouhin Oregon, which he managed for 13 years before co-founding A to Z. Debra Hatcher spearheads marketing, promotion and design while serving as the liaison with Northwest Core Collection, our national sales force. Sam Tannahill and Cheryl Francis, winemakers respectively for Archery Summit and Chehalem for 8 years, bring surpassing creativity and technical expertise resulting in the same quality at 120,000 cases as with the inaugural 2,500 that earned us Food and & Wine Magazine's award for the best American Pinot Noir under $20. In 2006, a widely experienced Michael Davies joined the winemaking team and Gregg Popovich, coach of the San Antonio Spurs, became a partner representing his Rock & Hammer Pinot Noir. Charlotte Mischel runs the day-to-day operations with her organizational and problem solving skills. In 2007, A to Z and more minority partners purchased Rex Hill Vineyards, a 25 year old winery at the northern tip of the Willamette Valley, and our staff expanded and we hired Amy Prosenjak Amy Prosenjak as CFO. Founded in 2002, the company is Oregon's fastest growing winery. The business model is simple: to produce and market Oregon's best wine values by concentrating on our core competencies of acquisition, blending and marketing. Read less
