2014 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

$ 28.00 / Bottle

This blend showcases the diversity of the Willamette Valley. It includes vineyards in the north, south, east, west and central pasrts of the valley. One of Brooks’ most consistently popular wines, with previous vintages being credited as some of the best Pinot Noir values on today’s market.

A beautiful perfumed nose of rich cherry jam, Thanksgiving cranberries with grated orange peel, morel mushrooms and black truffle. A wonderful high note of black tea, leather and potpourri. The wine is so luscious in the mouth, coating the palate with rich, dark cherry, warm raspberry, red currant and black plum.

There is a wonderful earthiness of portabella mushrooms on the grill, roasted vegetables, bacon fat and smoked meats. This Pinot finishes with ripe fruit, earth and complexity and a hint of tomato leaf and earthiness. Just delicious!

I would love this wine with Shishkabob from the grill, tea smoked duck, pork tenderloin with garlic and rosemary, cedar plank salmon or roasted hen of the woods mushrooms.

90 – Vinous

Deep red. Spice-accented cherry and raspberry scents hint at cola in the background. Juicy red fruit and floral pastille flavors show good depth as well as energy thanks to a core of minerality. A smoky nuance emerges on a subtly tannic finish that hangs on with very good, sweet persistence.
