Cooper Mountain Vineyards Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Life 2007

Member Review by loveandprozac:

I was a bit concerned about popping the cork on this one, as I'd had some previous efforts from Cooper Mountain that left me underwhelmed. That, of course, made this tasting all the more pleasant of a surprise. This is a medium bodied pinot made for easy drinking and/or simple food preparations. The acidity is remarkably lively, giving it a bright, zesty feel. Strong and layered notes of sweet-tart raspberries dominate the palate, accompanied by cherry and the faintest tang of minerality. Tannins are subtle and well-integrated.

Cooper Mountain Vineyards rests on the slopes of an ancient volcano. Over thousands of years, erosion helped create the terrain, soils and characteristics that make our wines unique. Our vineyards sit on land once farmed by Oregon pioneers who took to the unique location despite its challenges and lack of water. Cooper Mountain has a rich heritage. We are proud to be part of its story. Cooper Mountain Vineyards got its start in 1978 when Dr. Robert Gross and his wife, Corrine, planted the first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. The two of them tended the vines and carefully nurtured them as they established in the unique soils of Cooper Mountain. The vines were well tended and matured gracefully to produce true Oregon Pinots. At first, the fruit was sold to other wineries and crafted into wine by some of Oregon's finest winemakers. In 1987, the winery opened to offer its first vintage to the public and began a quest that has brought us to more than 100 acres, four varietals, a commitment to affordable Oregon wines, and an expanded tasting room for our visitors.
