Castle Rock Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon, 2017 (750ml)
Our Castle Rock Pinot Noir is produced from grapes grown in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Sheltered by the Cascade Mountains, this area is on the same latitude as France’s Burgundy region, and in the past thirty years it has gained international recognition as one of the most prestigious appellations for this cool climate varietal.
This elegant medium-bodied wine offers aromas of cherry and spice. On the palate the wine give flavors of berries, cinnamon, black cherry, sweet vanilla oak, and floral notes, with a long velvety finish. This versatile wine pairs well with lamb, chicken, veal, salmon and light pasta dishes.

"Right on the heels of the 2016 comes this early release from 2017. It's almost a twin—smooth, ripe and remarkable for the price. Flavorful berry and plum fruit with well-massaged notes of vanilla, tobacco and Bourbon combine to make this a most enjoyable everyday wine. That it's true Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is even better."
