Castle Rock-Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Our Castle Rock Pinot Noir is produced from grapes grown in Oregons Willamette Valley. Sheltered by the Cascade Mountains, this area is on the same latitude as Frances Burundy region, and in the past thirty years it has gained international recognition as one of the most prestigious appellations for this cool-climate varietal. This elegant medium-bodied wine offers aromas of cherry and spice. On the palate the wine give flavors of berries, cinnamon, black cherry, sweet vanilla oak, and floral notes, with a long velvety finish. This versatile wine pairs well with lamb, chicken, veal, salmon and light pasta dishes.

Wine was made from grapes harvested in early October 2008 but tastes like early harvest. May improve with time in the cellar. Well conceived, just a bit tart and simple.
