Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from J. Christopher in Oregon is very good. It opens with a black plum and craisin bouquet with hints of clove and cinnamon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is a very tasty blueberry and mulberry blend with notes of raspberry tea and loam. I also detected hints of clove, cinnamon, and teaberry. The finish is dry, and its flavors linger and last for a while. I would pair this very tasty Pinot with a pork tenderloin with a cherry Pinot Noir sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Volcanique cuvée is a special selection of outstanding barrels from vineyards we work with in the Dundee Hills. The wine showcases the savory quality, the fruit purity, and the fine-grained texture that characterizes the deep, red volcanic clay of these hills. The 2019 is an excellent example, with its delicately floral fruit aromas, silky texture, and structural finesse. As with all of our wines, it has the depth and structure to age gracefully for many years.
