The 1999 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is a lively wine with great color and intensity. It is very drinkable now, and will cellar well for up to five years. The nose offers tones of red fruits, strawberries and red cherries and a hint of mineral components. The mouthfeel is soft and pleasant with silky, round tannins on the finish. We suggest matching the classic Oregon elements of this Pinot Noir with grilled fish, particularly Northwest Salmon, poultry, veal and roasted vegetables.
