Bright and fruity - a refreshing and interesting Oregon Pinot. Tasted great with grilled salmon.

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

Great wine for celebrating! Big fruity taste, smooth follow-on, very bright color and flavor, generally just leaves a happy feeling. Good value wine for times that call for one glass or one case.

Bright big fruit, extremely spicy (to the point of feeling almost effervescent), light and delicious. This is a nice wine to have in place of white when pairing with food.

The most striking thing about this wine is its texture: I would go so far as to say it's effervescent. As in, it feels like you're drinking sparkling wine. I'm not *super* into that, but it is crisp and appley and light and tasty.
