About This Wine

It is one of the most diverse, most beautiful stretches of land on planet Earth.

It is the Willamette Valley of Oregon, where there are enough scenic waterfalls, vast fields of flowers, covered bridges and winding rivers to fill months of Sunday drives. It’s a valley where organic livestock is sold to local restaurants that have gained reputations far and wide as culinary destinations.

And, of course, it is a valley filled with wineries — more than 700 of them — producing world-class bottlings of Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. Among them is Colonial Wine Co., where the specialty of the house is Pinot Noir.

With microclimates mirroring France’s Burgundy appellation, Willamette Valley is known for Pinot Noir that is fruitful and, based on each vintner’s preference for barrel aging, engagingly spicy as well. The 2015 Colonial Wine Co. Pinot Noir is bright, fresh and crisp — a beautiful wine from a beautiful place.

About Pinot Noir

Very sensitive to climate and handling in winery, this fickle grape of Burgundy yields low tannin and acidity, medium colors and lifespan. Classic berry, cherry and currant flavors, silky textures typically balanced with spicy or floral tones.

    A good Pinot Noir but lacking in smoothness and grace of a great Pinot Noir.
