Food Pairings for O'Reilly Pinot Noir
Much lighter and thinner than the 2006, and much less flavorful. Almost bitter, but, this IS a very young wine.
perhaps it was due to just returning from a pinot tasting extravaganza in the Russian River Valley, but i felt this wine was overly simple. i realize oregon pinot, in general, is supposed to reflect a more old world style, but it seemed overly tannic, very little fruit came through (under-ripe cherry mostly). it's a bit young, and it mellowed out a bit after i left the last two glasses in the bottle on the counter overnight...i'd try it again in a year.
External Reviews for O'Reilly Pinot Noir
This new vintage builds upon the delicious foundation this winery has built up with Pinots past. It's a lovely expression of Oregon fruit, with ripe (but not too ripe) black cherry and cranberry flavors, bolstered by a bright framework of fresh acidity and a mere suggestion of vanilla-toned oak.
This is a fruit-driven, texture-laden wine with a nose of black cherry and white pepper. It is drenched in sweet, tangy, black and red fruit flavors that are both long and surprisingly elegant.
Pleasant, light-textured wine, with plum and smoke flavors that stay with you on the finish. Drink now.
A more serious Pinot Noir, this deep cherry-colored red offers, in addition to some bright fruit aromas, sophisticated notes of barrel influence. It is a well-balanced, mouth-filling wine which integrates well with tenderloin of lamb: its lively acidity complementing the nuances of this flavorful meat without overpowering. A truly great food wine!
Crisp and appealing for its bright berry flavors and hints of mineral. Finishes with an open texture. Drink now through 2008.
This is hands-down the best value Pinot Noir made in Oregon, year in and year out. It's firm and full-bodied, perfectly ripe, with lovely spice that range from pepper to cinnamon and allspice. The fruit lingers in the midpalate, round and tangy, with flavors of cherry and plum. It's a thoroughly rich and satisfying wine that is big enough to work with dark poultry, salmon and even veal.
Made by David O'Reilly of Owen Roe fame, the O'Reilly's Pinot Noir perfectly balances value with quality. Let's face it, it's not too often you find a Pinot for under $20 with any character, but this one puts many pricier Pinots to shame! Bursting with flavor, the lingering cherry notes will haunt you long after your last sip.
