2016 Adelsheim Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
When I think of amazing Pinot Noir, I think big bucks. I think hard-to-find, impossible-to-get and out of my price range. Well, that's what I used to think. About 7 years ago I was turned onto the wines of Willamette Valley in Oregon and like a boy with his first crush, I was quickly smitten. Anytime you can find a gem in the store, pick one up, even if know little about the wine. These Pinot Noir are generally top notch and seldom disappoint because most are 100% Pinot (and that's what you should look for). The 2016 Adelsheim shows the typically beautiful medium blue-purple color in the glass and the aromas of raspberry and cocoa powder are most noticeable. The mouthfeel is light and welcoming and the raspberry is joined with dried cranberries and baking spices. This wine is very silky and has very low tannin. With over 12,000 cases produced, you shouldn't have any trouble picking up 3 or 4 bottles for yourself! This would pair great with a fatty fish dish. Enjoy!
