Nice concentrated cherry on the nose with a touch of raspberry. Raspberry on the midpalate. The finish, however, is weak. It's over very quickly and there's really nothing there. Not a great pinot, but not terrible (I've had much worse). Probably won't buy again but it wouldn't be a complete waste of money if you did. There are better ones out there though in this price range.

Soft, silky, notes of plum and cherry. Nice finish and pairs well with sugar-seared, pan-fried salmon. Will buy again!

Ruby red in color with aromas of strawberries, cedar and spice the wine's luscious flavors of vanilla bean and cherry tart are well-supported by its surprising structure. Grapes for this wine, as in previous years, were sourced from throughout the Willamette, Umpqua, Rogue and Walla Walla Valleys, creating a truly Oregon blend.

Winemaker's Notes:

Firesteed started as a ‘virtual winery’ in 1992, and although there is now a physical winery, the winemaking philosophy remains unchanged. In the words of Howard Rossbach, “We seek to make wines of quality and value and once we find them we work out long-term contracts with grape growers to produce wines to our specifications.” This Pinot Noir has a good depth of bright, ruby colour, with perfumes of spiced berry fruit on the nose. On the palate, it is bright and lively, with good balance between a juicy, cherry fruit character and a lightly spiced backbone of ripe tannins. The spice from the oak carries through to the finish.
