Orogeny Green Valley Pinot Noir shows bright Bing cherry, pomegranate and toffee notes on the nose, with a hint of spicy oak layered with ginger, nutmeg and coriander. On the palate, the bright cherry flavors dominate, supported by lively notes of blackberry and blueberry that linger on the candied-cherry finish. The lush fruit continues to develop with time in the glass.
This lovely wine pairs perfectly with seared duck breast with cherry sauce, pork tenderloin with pear-ginger chutney or wild mushroom risotto.
"Typical faded garnet hue. Candied cherry fruit, charred oak and sweet tobacco aromas. Generous red fruit flavors followed by drying, peppery tannins. Youthful finish with dusty, mineral-like accents and lingering toasted oak." 90 Points
