Plaisance Ranch, Papa Joe’s Private Stash Pinot Noir 2017, Applegate Valley, Oregon
Tasting Note: A wine that is a great a value for the money for an Oregon pinot noir.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of red plum, strawberry and raspberry with a hint of orange citrus.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied pinot noir has medium-intensity, red-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium tannin.
Bottle Note: Mix equal parts Saturday afternoon with a pail of pie cherries. Roll out a crust, and fill it with pitted fruit dusted with cloves. Lay a lattice of elegance across the top. Bake in a wood-fired oven, sending a plume of smoke into the sky – signaling the soon of goodness. Let cool, then cut into this pinot noir and serve with a dollop of delight.
