2014 Caroline's Cuvee Pinot Noir
The 2014 vintage was one of Oregon's best, producing perfectly ripe fruit with intense colors and flavors, while retaining juicy acidity. Color is medium cherry with a hint of garnet, with aromas of red pie cherries, strawberries, and notes of cola and cocoa that open in the glass. On the palate, the wine is elegant and balanced, with silky tannins and flavors with a lovely long finish of juicy red fruit. Ready to drink now, enjoy this classic Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with cedar planked salmon, rotisserie chicken, or seared duck breast with cherry sauce.
