Adelsheim Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Premier 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

“With its wide variety of origins and clones, this wine displays both red and black fruit aromas (cherries and raspberries), on the nose and the palate. In addition, one finds a light touch of brown spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice) and even a little black pepper. True to our house style, it is elegantly textured with satiny, polished tannins showing in the finish. Pair it with salmon or ahi, veal or pork, poultry (think duck) or beef, or hearty vegetarian entrees.” Dave Paige, Winemaker

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.

Another translucent Pinot that makes you want to taste it. This has a touch of meatiness on the nose with lots of spicy porcini tones and notes of forest floor, flowers, and toasted oak over a dark base of cherry with hints of apricot. Absolutely silky in the mouth with nice acidity that may be a bit pronounced for some palates. The fruit is very crisp and fresh in the mouth and the tannins almost non-existent. This really develops lovely inner mouth perfume that is very well balanced by the fresh fruit. There are note of forest floor and earth with a subtle medicinal edge that leads to a medium length finish that really focuses on the red fruit. 88pts

Bright cherry fruit with a twinge of earthy funkiness. Big cherries, tea, and cedar in a medium bodied well balanced package that finishes with nice acidity and complexity.

Pours a bright ruby. Damp earth/barnyard and cherries on the nose. Plums, chocolate, and cedar on the palate - the finish and tannins are unimpressive at first, but get stronger and give the wine more elegance the longer it sits in the glass.

I recently paired this with duck cassoulet; I enjoyed it very much. A clean, fruity taste.

Even with this sweet wine, we stay true toour winery philosophy that a wines highestuse is in pairing with meals. That meansretaining enough of the grapes natural acidityto ensure that the wine never becomes too cloying.Our Deglace has amazing apricot, fig andhoneysuckle flavors that should prove to be aperfect match with red berry tarts, pumpkincheesecake, and a wide range of other desserts.
