Adelsheim Pinot Noir 2019, 750ml, Willamette Valley, Oregon

“Pulled from multiple vineyards throughout the northern Willamette Valley, this wine showcases the extraordinary depth and complexity found in our region. What a unique harvest 2019 was! It certainly had its challenges – yet the end result is something truly special – wines full of life and electricity and thousands of hours of passion. September was the challenge. Temperatures cooled and several strong rain events passed through the vineyard. But this was Adelsheim’s 43rd harvest, and experience kicked into gear. We were patient, protected our vines, and after a perfect stretch of dryout days arrived, we sprung into action. The end result was fruit of exceptional quality and a vintage we are immensely proud of. ‘This is a lovely vintage for our Willamette Valley bottling. There are lush red cherries and delicate baking spices on the nose, along with sneaky hints of lavender and honeysuckle. This is positively vibrant on the palate, bursting with freshness. The texture is supple with smooth tannins leading into the finish.” – winery.
