2010 J. Christopher Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

2010 J. Christopher Willamette Valley Pinot NoirThis wine was picked out by Irene Virbila as her “wine of the week” in the LA Times. She wrote: “This 2010 Willamette Valley Pinot made from grapes grown in four of the Willamette Valley’s American Viticultural Areas — Dundee Hills, Chehalem Mountains, Yamhill-Carlton and Eola-Amity Hills — is everything you could wish. Silky and nuanced, it tastes of plums, blueberries and forest, an elegant expression of Oregon Pinot Noir. Keep an eye out for the winery’s more expensive single vineyard bottlings too.”

She added: “I’d save it for a roast duck or braised duck legs, maybe a simple grilled hanger steak with sautéed mushrooms. Or a selection of cheeses.”
