A to Z Wineworks The Essence Of Oregon Pinot Noir 2015
|Brand||A to Z Wineworks|
Wine SpectatorLightly prickly tannins surround a sleek, supple core of raspberry, cherry and floral flavors. A hint of savory spice adds to the gentle finish. Best from 2018 through 2022. 10,513 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastBottled to celebrate the brand's 15th anniversary, this "Essence of Oregon" blend includes grapes from 35 different vineyards. It's a lively lovely wine, with spicy raspberry and cranberry fruit, framed in dark chocolate. Balancing acids keep it fresh and focused, and it has some of the lush jamminess of the better 2015 Beaujolais.
Wine AdvocateThis is a selection of the best of the 2015 fruit, in honor of the 15th anniversary. Pale ruby-purple in color, the 2015 The Essence of Oregon Pinot Noir offers up notions of black raspberry and red currants with an earthy undercurrent of dusty soil and mossy bark. Medium-bodied, the palate gives a very good intensity of vibrant red berry flavors supported by ripe, grainy tannins with plenty of freshness and a long, earthy finish.
