Firesteed Rose of Pinot ' 2013

Member Review by Natalie Kronick:

Great fruity pinot out of Oregon. And a stellar deal! I paid about $18 for a bottle while vacationing in VT for my birthday. What a treat! Even got my boyfriend hooked on pinots from the PNW! Strawberries, a bit of raspberry, some rosepetal notes, good solid Oregon terroir, not overly fruity like some of the cheap wines. Nice earthy red fruit! would be great with a Cana de Cabra goat cheese and honey on a baguette. Quince paste would be a nice side to pair as well! Highly recommend!

I was expecting something called "Firesteed" to have a bit more body to it, honestly. I found this wine surprisingly thin and light, with very little evolution as one continued to take sips. It's fruity and earthy, but tart overtones from raspberry overwhelmed a lot of the potential complexity for me. I agree with a previous reviewer that the Firesteed I drank seemed more watered down from past iterations. Fine wine if you can catch it on a sale, but even then I'd probably suggest looking somewhere else if you're feeling an Oregon Pinot.

I used to enjoy this Pinot. Recently, it is so thin and unremarkable that I found myself wondering if they were watering it down...not a good sign. I won't be buying it again. There are much better Pinots out there. What happened to Firesteed?

An excellent affordable Pinot Noir...not much more to say. It has a delicate fruit flavor that is balanced with a very small oak flavor. For those that enjoy their wines fruity and not too spicey/oaky this is an excellent choice.

Picked up a bottle of this last night. My wife and I like a full-bodied Pinot. This wasn't. The best word to describe it is "meh".

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.

The wine is richly aromatic like a warm berry cobbler topped with cold vanilla ice cream. Lively in the mouth each sip is brimming with black cherry and raspberry flavors that continue through to the richly rewarding finish.Winery.
