Panther Creek Winemaker's Cuvee Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Our Winemaker's Cuvee is a blend of Pinot Noir from our vineyards in the Willamette Valley which were selected for their richness, complexity, and structure. This Pinot is an elegant wine that is fruit forward with ripe strawberry, red cherry, and pomegranate. Bright acidity and a lush mouthfeel with subtle hints of cola and clove round out the finish. This Pinot Noir is a perfect every day wine and is easy to enjoy!
Bright ruby. Lively, spice-tinged cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors slow good clarity and a hint of succulent herbs. Taut and focused in style, with a hint of licorice emerging on the subtly tannic finish, which leaves a zesty, vaguely tart red currant note behind.
This early release shows light flavors of strawberry and raspberry, along with juicy acids adding a hint of fresh oranges. That said, the overall impression is of a rather thin wine which does a quick fade and shows little palate weight. Drink soon.
