Wine Review: This dark purple colored Pinot Noir is very impressive and over delivers considering its price point. It opens with an attractive black raspberry bouquet with a hint of cherry-cola. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied, nicely balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is a very tasty black cherry-cola with notes of blackberry tea with hints of oak, blueberry and bay leaf. The finish is dry and its refined mild tannins and flavors drift away nicely. This Pinot Noir is extremely food friendly. I would pair it with Beef Wellington. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The new Volcanique bottling is sourced from our favorite volcanic soil vineyards in the Dundee Hills AVA. Home to the first Pinot Noir vines ever planted in Oregon, the Dundee Hills are iconic and established the Willamette Valley as a serious wine region. The deep, well-drained, volcanic Jory clay soil gives us beautifully savory wines with purity and a finely focused structure.
