Cloudline Pinot Noir 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Clouldine is owned by Dreyfus Ashby (importer for Joseph Drouhin Burgundies), and boasts Veronique Drouhin as a consultant winemaker. This Oregon Pinot Noir is a beautiful ruby in color and offers aromas of berry fruit, blackcurrant and spice on the nose. On the palate, a wonderful texture and a long, flavorful finish. A lovely, elegant red wine from the Willamette Valley.

Cloudline Cellars represents a first for Dreyfus, Ashby—our own wine. Given our love for Pinot Noir and our long history developing Domaine Drouhin Oregon and other fine wines, it’s probably not surprising that we would choose Oregon’s Willamette Valley as the home for this exciting project. In 2002, the Drouhin Family of Burgundy created Cloudline Cellars. Already well known for Domaine Drouhin Oregon, the Drouhins wanted to offer an elegant, authentic Oregon Pinot Noir that would be approachable young and more widely available than the DDO wines. All fruit is sourced from low-yield vineyards in the Willamette Valley, and is vinified under the eye of consulting winemaker Véronique Drouhin-Boss, Cloudline has quietly become one of Oregon’s most successful brands. The 2013 Pinot Noir remains true to its reputation for high-quality and value. From the beginning, the Cloudline wines have been a hit with wine lovers in the U.S., and can now also be found in Brazil, Canada, Japan, Norway and Sweden.   Read less

TASTING NOTES: The 2013 Cloudline has a brilliant ruby color and medium body, which is true to Oregon Pinot Noir. On the nose and following through on the palate, I find bright red and black cherries, with a framework of cola nut and ripe dark fruit. Tannins are soft, and the finish is graceful. This is a wine to enjoy tonight, or sometime in the next 3-5 years. - Véronique Drouhin DESCRIPTION: The 2013 growing season in Oregon’s Northern Willamette Valley was warm and relatively even. Picking began in early September under clear skies, and after a surprise burst of weather, optimal conditions returned for the last few days of picking. The result is an interesting marriage of cooler and warmer year characteristics, making 2013 a unique, balanced and exciting vintage in the Northern Willamette Valley. FOOD PAIRINGS: Pinot Noir is well-suited to pair with poultry, beef, fish, ham, lamb and pork. It will play well with creamy sauces, spicy seasonings and may just be one of the world's most versatile food wines.

Deep ruby red in color, this wine is soft and round on the palate, with a focus on cherries and red fruits. An overall fruit forward wine that is thoroughly enjoyable.
