Airlie Vintner's Blend Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Oregon 2008
Varietal aromas of nectarine and melon are characterized by subtle integrated barrel characters. A fruit driven style with a light and creamy texture. Flavors of citrus and stone fruit are supported by a creamy mid-palate softness. An ideal wine to accompany a fresh seafood platter.
Airlie Winery, established in 1986, is dedicated to vintage dated Oregon premium wines. The winery overlooks Dunn Forest Vineyard producing estate varieties well suited to the coastal edge of Oregon's Willamette Valley.
Needed some time to open up but developed nicely. Dark berry, black plum and spice.
