Primarius Pinot Noir 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Primarius Pinot Noir embodies sheer elegance, where delicate flavors give way to full fruit expression; providing the most pleasurable drinking experience for wine lovers. Primarius represents Oregon's finest cool climate regions and is a true reflection of the state's most famed varietal. Latin for ‘distinguished,' Primarius promises sophistication in every sip and exceeds expectations in quality, flavor and value.

Very delicate on the nose with lacy aromas of spiced strawberry fruit, freshly turned earth and some used wood. Light and elegant in the mouth this enters with a hint of baby fat but quickly turns taut and transparent in the mouth. the flavors are subtle and recall the tart berry and used wood found on the nose. theres a fine base of ripe supple tannins adding support in the mouth here and they stick out just a touch on the moderately long and simple tart red berried finish but i find that attractive. This is very subtle but that is what many look for in Oregon Pinot. I find this very attractive but others might find it a bit too restrained. 87pts

Agreed on strawberries and a dusky but delicate wordiness. Quite bright for a domestic Pinot, but tasty.

The Primarius certainly bears a very light, almost pinkish color (if would have been a hell-of a-lot darker if they had added more Syrah). The taste matches the color, with bright red cherry, cranberry and ripe raspberry; but the soft and delicate earthy and dried herb notes aren’t that far behind. Very mellow, with a beautifully long finish. It will change before your eyes/palate if you give it a little time in the glass. A great intro to Oregon Pinot (potentially also red Burgundies) for the novice, and a perfect every-night “glugger” for the already inducted.

Bright and lively, with a hint of candy to the cherry... -HS

Light in flavor compared to a BIG American Pino, and is somewhere between a Burgundy Pino Noir and a real Burgundy. Also unusual: a pungently herby, almost hemp-like floral nose. I kept sensing a metallic initial taste, huge floral punch and an earthy aftertaste.

Inviting aromas of raspberry and watermelon marry with hints of bacon, tar and earthy notes. Tantalizing cranberry, rhubarb and rose hips are interwoven on the palate. This Pinot Noir leaves wonderful flavors of cocoa and clove on the finish.

Burgundian in style, with layers of subtle dried fruit and spice that evolve on the palate. A perfect pairing with simple grilled salmon.
