Primarius Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon|
This Pinot Noir is a blend of all of our vineyard sources throughout Oregon and reflects the bright, juicy and delicate flavors that are the result of the ample 2017 vintage. Bright red fruits, citrus blossom and honeycomb aromatics are underscored by hints of candied violets and jasmine. The palate is lively, with flavors of rhubarb, wild strawberry and pie cherries and rounds out to a lingering finish accented with notes of cocoa powder and silky tannins. This wine will not disappoint when paired with a wide assortment of foods from grilled salmon to roast lamb. Enjoy immediately or allow it to improve with age in bottle for at least 5 years.
Snappy and fruit-forward, with bright cherry and spice flavors. Drink now. 40,000 cases made.
Thin berry fruit leaves little impression, while the acidity punches through around stiff, green tannins. The wine just doesn't feel quite ripe enough.
