Colette Bancroft, writing in the Tampa Bay Times, recommended this Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley in Oregon, which she said was a wine “not to be missed” if you are a fan of the grape.

She said: “This is a superb and pure example of what this medium-bodied red can be: complex, lush and elegant.¬†Fruit is very much to the fore, as it should be. Ripe cherry, a nice brambly edge and a hint of cassis on the nose segue into full frontal cherry and red raspberry on the tongue, accented by fainter notes of plum, mocha and white pepper. The result is a dark and harmonious flavour profile. A medium-long silky finish is capped by just a hint of anise at sign-off.”

Price: $23
