Now I'll be the first to admit that I am not the biggest fan of Pinor Noir, but having lived in Portland for a few years and traveling extensively throughout the Willamette Valley, I have to admit it kinda grows on you! The 2008 Cloudline Oregon Pinot Noir is not a pure Willamette Valley wine, but is a blend of wine from a variety of Oregon vineyards. This is one of the lighter Pinot Noirs that I've had, and it tends to have more delicate flavors than some heavier wines. The wine itself has a nose that is somewhat woodsy, with mild floral aromas, that hints at the lightness. As for the taste, it's a fruit forward wine with hints of blackberry and an almost honey-like sweetness, with a finish that was somewhat lacking. This wine is light enough that I would hesitate to pair it with a full meal, instead I think it's an ideal wine for a cheese course, particularly made up soft cheeses that would not overpower the delicate nature of this wine. Overall, I would rate this wine a solid 3.5, it's certainly not a "knock your socks off" sort of wine, but for the $12-15 price tag, it certainly is a value among Oregon Pinots!

A great Pinot for a great price. Fruity, mild tannins, a great wine for every day.

Cloudline wines are a project of importer Dreyfus Ashby, vinified with guidance from DDO's Veronique Drouhin. It's a professional product, clean and straightforward, with tart red fruits and striking acidity. The tannins, ripe and firm, provide some finishing heft. - P.G. ** SOLD OUT **

Winemaker's Notes:

On the nose, there is an immediate burst of bright, fresh red fruits, including strawberry and raspberry, followed by an earthy quality. On the palate, the wine has fine texture, soft tannins, good acidity and a strong core of fruit. It is a wine that offers immediate pleasure, on its own, or better yet, in the company of a delicious meal.
