Adelsheim Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Premier 2007
“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
Editorial Reviews for Adelsheim Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Premier
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.
Nose: Cherries / Rasberries Smoth silky textures, very refreshing long, beautiful finish - leaves taste of "Kirschbrause" Excellent Pinot Noir.
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.
Earthy but fruity to the nose - good finish.
Great rose. The nose is pure strawberry with a hint of black pepper.
I recently paired this with duck cassoulet; I enjoyed it very much. A clean, fruity taste.
Three and a half glasses
