Montinore Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Or 2009
Liking this Pinot. Well rounded and has some nice mineral flavour to it.
You hit the nail on the head if you say that this is "Old-World Style", this 2009 PN from Montinore is one of the most well rounded, Burgundian style Pinots that I have tasted in a long while. There is a nice note of cherry with a hint of plumb, raspberry and a subtle smokiness. You can tell that the Bio-dynamic practices are having a very positive effect on the grapes, giving it that truly organic flavor.
External Reviews for Montinore Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Or
A lovely Old-World-style Pinot Noir from Montinore Estate. While the wine is pale red in color, the nose and palate positively burst with powder, brambly raspberries, walnuts and red cherries. Perfect when paired with delicate meat dishes and other light fare.
Light garnet in color with earthy aromas of spice and dried cherries. Medium bodied with fine grained tannins and a lingering finish of spice and berry. Made with a respect of the land and a Zen-like hands-off approach to letting the grapes express themselves with purity and minimal winemaking. This is a contemplative wine that makes a commanding statement with a meditative chant. To taste it is to understand it.
