Portlandia Pinot Noir 2021, 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 aromas of ripe strawberry and raspberry open up on the nose along with a hint of cedar. Vibrant flavors of red cherry and cranberry follow, accompanied by accents of black tea and thy me, with a dash of pink peppercorn. Fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity provide structure and balance through the lingering finish. Sourced from hand selected lots throughout the Willamette Valley, including vineyards in McMinnville, Yamhill-Carlton and Dundee Hills AVAs. Aged for ten months in a combination of French and American oak. Enjoy now or hold for 3-5 years.
