Great Value


Deep, rich color (especially for a value-priced Willamette Vallley Pinot Noir). Ripe, slightly liqueur-like dark cherry flavors with support of cinnamon stick, rosewater and cola. Has polished tannins (i.e. smooth!), making for a nicely rip, silky finish. There is lots and lots of pleasure here! Noting the AVA on the bottle is Oregon, the 2016 Planet Oregon Pinot Noir is all Willamette Valley fruit.

Review from Mary Orlin, the WineFashionista:WineFashionista Logo
“A wine made with specific intentions from sustainably and organically farmed vineyards; whole berry ferment. Fruit forward – raspberry, black cherry. Fresh, crispy, soft, easy drinking but still savory and fruity. Awesome value!”
