Adelsheim Pinot Noir Elizabeth's Reserve 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This Elizabeths Reserve offers aromas of bright red raspberries and ripe currants with hints of black cherry. Longer contemplation reveals nuances of the smoky cedar essence of lapsang souchong tea and dried rose petal. On the palate, the flavors mimic the aromas, leading again with raspberry. The wine texture is exceptionally balanced with good upfront acidity, and a silky mouthfeel with soft tannins that linger to a strawberry cream finish. Enjoy this wine when young, or allow it to age gracefully for five or up to ten years with proper storage conditions. It will pair beautifully with the Pinot noir classics lamb, duck, grilled salmon, and aged cheeses.

David Adelsheim first planted the grapes of northern Europe in Oregon’s Willamette Valley in 1972 because he believed that fine and distinctive wine could be created in the cool climate of this unknown place. As the industry advanced, he realized that this new region could only succeed if all its growers and winemakers aimed for the highest quality… and he led the collaborative charge to achieve that goal by writing Oregon’s labeling regulations, setting up the system for importing grapevine clones from Europe, and helping found most of the organizations and events that define the industry. Today a new generation of passionate Adelsheim staff continues the tradition of leadership of the Oregon industry in areas such as sustainability, marketing of brand Oregon, grape and wine research, and the ongoing evolution of wine style.  In our vineyards and winery, we merge traditional and modern techniques to craft wines that are elegant, complex, rich, age-worthy, yet consistently alluring.
