Clear and vibrant, the 2014 A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir opens with rich primary aromas of strawberries, cherries, blueberries, raspberries, even cranberries, developing to violets, red currants, pipe tobacco, iron and wet stone. The attack is beautifully balanced between richness and brightness with hints of roses, honeysuckle, red and blue fruit flavors. The mid-palate reveals ripe tannins and crisp acidity with a touch of minerality and spice (cinnamon, anise, saffron, sandalwood) lending greater complexity. This wine, succulent with great concentration, finishes long and rich with classic Oregon freshness. The harmony and depth of the 2014 Oregon vintage are on full display in the 2014 A to Z Wineworks Pinot Noir. Built for mid-term aging, this wine has great integrity and should drink well on release and for the next 3-5 years.

Wine EnthusiastQuite possibly this has the largest production of any single Oregon Pinot Noir, which makes the quality even more impressive. A bit in the vein of a Beaujolais, this offers Gamay-like flavors of red berry and wild cherry. It's broadly fruity and forward on the palate, with zippy acidity that punches through the finish.

Wine SpectatorBright and tangy, with juicy raspberry and lime flavors on a sleek frame, lingering nicely. Drink now through 2018. 235,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pinot Noir, which comes from fruit sourced from around the state, has smudged red berry fruit on the nose that is commendably clean at this price. The palate is medium-bodied with soft red cherry and strawberry fruit, a little rough around the edges, but with good depth and length. I doubt you will find a better Pinot Noir for under twenty dollars.
