A To Z Wineworks Pinot Noir Oregon Pinot Noir Other Oregon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Great clear ruby Pinot Noir color. A beautiful cornucopia of fresh ripe red fruits immediately jumps out from the nose. Sweet dark ripe raspberries violets fresh spices lavender hints of oak and cassis emerge after the initial blast of fruit. The wine is most obviously very ripe perfumed heady and redolent of high-toned notes of bright red fruits.

A to Z Wineworks was started in 2002 by four friends, Oregon wine industry veterans, Deb Hatcher (Eyrie), Bill Hatcher (Domaine Drouhin Oregon), Sam Tannahill (Archery Summit) and Cheryl. Francis (Chehalem). The two couples worked in the Hatcher's kitchen to build the original blend honored by Food & Wine Magazine as the Best American Pinot Noir under $20. Recognition for their A to Z wines with dependable quality and great value continued and production grew. In 2006, the group welcomed another Oregon wine veteran, Michael Davies, as winemaker, and partnered with Gregg Popovich (Coach of the San Antonio Spurs) to buy REX HILL Vineyards and Winery (established in 1982). A to Z has worked with more than 100 vineyards across the state always offering assistance for sustainability certification that the group expects to be achieved within three years of partnering. Today, A to Z has two viticulturists on staff and uses biodynamic principles to farm all owned or long-leased vineyards. Diverse sourcing across the state mitigates regional weather difficulties and adds complexity and depth to the one wine of each variety that is blended in any vintage. Additionally, A to Z has more collective Oregon winemaking experience than any other winery, experience that can make a difference in difficult vintages. A to Z remains true to the dual mission of offer Aristocratic Wines at Democratic Prices blending one cuvee each vintage of Pinot Noir, Chardonny and Pinot Gris that deliver the Essence of Oregon. A commitment to excellence is matched by a belief in fair value and sustainability in business as well as farming and a drive to offer the highest quality for the best value. A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir has twice been named to Wine Spectator's Top 100 wines of the yar; A to Z Oregon Pinot Gris is a perennial Best Buy; and A to Z Oregon Chardonnay is America's Best Selling Oregon Chardonnay. A to Z is also a certified B Corporation. Read less

I'm a Zin and Cab lover, but this is good Pinot Noir. This wine compliments a chocolate pots de creme quite nicely.

FINALLY! A domestic Pinot Noir that actually tastes like it's from Burgundy. Dry, Fruity (smoky cherry and black cherry) , fresh, medium body. Best served slightly chilled (around 60F). This is the kind of wine I can drink by itself or with some mild cheeses.

Clear and vibrant, this wine has a beautiful dark color and aromas of mixed berries, earth, smoke, violets, Asian spices and minerals. In the mouth, the wine mirrors the aromatics with a succulent texture and good acidity. As the finish unfolds, the individual characteristics of the wine unify and augment one another. Beautifully balanced between richness and power, the wine possesses amazing depth and purity. Classically proportioned while being built with long term potential, the concentrated 2005 A to Z Pinot Noir will be perhaps the longest lived wine we have made.

Affordable Pinot Noir from Oregon! Black cherries and red raspberries on the palate. Juicy with lush fruit and a great fresh finish. Light tannins and drinking well today.
