Mckinlay Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2009

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

Hallelujah! A properly classic Pinot Noir from Oregon with a pocketbook-friendly price! Juicy, filled with currant and summer cherry aromas that follow through on the palate, silky tannins and balanced acidity, this wine is meant for the dinner table or the cellar. Perfect with cranberry sauced Turkey, roast Goose and Mushroom quiche. The vineyard sites in Willamette Valley are rich in volacnic soils and were originally farmed for cherries, apples and nuts until 1989. Today, Pinot Noir is densely planted and the production of this tiny winery remains small. Vine health and hands-on labor are the winery's monikers, yielding exquisite Burgundian styled Pinot year after year.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
