A to Z Essence Pinot Noir 2016
The 2016 A to Z The Essence of Oregon Pinot Noir is a beautiful dark color, saturated and brilliant all the way through. Classic Oregon Pinot Noir aromas of red and black cherries, blueberries, strawberries, baking spices, cassis, wet stones, and ripe raspberries turn to deeper, more complex notes of violets, smoke, game, coffee and clean earth. The smooth palate is succulent and vibrant presenting abundant fruit and spice flavors reflecting the ripeness of the 2016 vintage. A classic Oregon freshness gives the wine lift and balance as it heads into a long, elegant finish. The 2016 A to Z Wineworks The Essence of Oregon Pinot Noir is drinking very well young and has the richness, balance, structure and intensity to become more complex over the next five years.
"Chocolate and cherry on the nose with hints of cinnamon and tart cranberry. A pretty little wine, it’s clean, pure, juicy, and long." -90pts, Tasting Panel
