"With its scents of oak and black cherry, this generous wine is lush and spicy. Its irresistible pillowy texture is enhanced by the pleasing, mild bitterness of the tannin. It has the heft for grilled salmon."

The intent Adelsheim brings to producing and blending the Willamette Valley Pinot noir is to unite the elements – especially the fresh fruit flavors – that typify Pinot noir in this region, albeit as tempered by the vagaries of the vintage. By blending the diverse flavors and textures of multiple vineyards, Winemaker Dave Paige produces a richly supple and focused Pinot noir.
This wine displays red fruit and dark cherry characters, both in the nose and on the palate. Wild cherry and juicy raspberry flavors intermingle with hints of spice.
Pair this fruit-forward, satin-textured beauty with salmon or ahi, veal or pork, poultry (think duck) and hearty vegetarian entrees.
