2016 Bellpine Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Since its inception as a wine region a few decades ago, Willamette Valley has been noted as a special place for growing Burgundian varieties, especially Pinot Noir. The region’s unique soils produce superior wines capable of garnering worldwide recognition and praise. This particular example illustrates exactly why Pinot Noir is so revered in the area, exhibiting flavors of perfectly ripened black raspberry and red cherry that are interlaced with notes of black tea and rose petal. Delightful on its own, this red will also shine with salmon or quail.
