Wy’East Vineyards, Vinette’s Cuvée Pinot Noir 2016, Columbia Gorge, Oregon
Tasting Note: A pinot noir with a round midpalate combined with red fruit and the lightest hint of oak.
Medium-to-deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red plum and rosehip with just the lightest touch of vanilla.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied pinot noir has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on nose the supported by medium acidity.
Bottle Note: Luscious red berry fruit is balanced with oak barrel aging. Perfect with salmon, lamb or any seafood dish. Vinette’s cuvée is named after our granddaughter, a charming addition to our viticultural family. 100 cases produced. It’s quality over quantity at our family owned vineyards in the Hood River Valley. Oregon’s majestic Mt. Hood, known to Native Americans as Wy’East, presides over our vineyards. The volcanic soils bring luscious complexity to our wines. Cheers!
