Portlandia Pinot Noir 2018, 750ml, Willamette Valley, Oregon

Portlandia was created with the singular aim to make Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris that reflects the richness and beauty of the Willamette Valley all while having fun and not paying too much. We’re fortunate to work with passionate grower partners who support these ideals. Their meticulous care
of vineyards shows in the superb quality of the fruit vintage after vintage. The results are Pinots that showcase the best of the Willamette, crafted without any pretense. These are wines made to be enjoyed, guided by our simple philosophy: Play Hard. Work Later. Tasting Notes: Bright youthful garnet color of medium intensity. Sweet ripe cherry and red plum aromas with a hint of minerality and spicy pipe tobacco. Aromas are medium+ intensity. Aromas repeat as flavors, with a spicy lingering finish. Winemaking: Hand selected lots from cooler Willamette Valley sites were cold-fermented in open-top vats using hand punch downs and aged for 10-12 months in a combination of French and American oak. Hold for up to 3-5 years or drink now.
