Pinot Noir, Boulder Bluff, Adelsheim, Willamette Valley, Oregon, 2010, 13.6% abv.

It’s Thanksgiving again – so here is the requisite post about a Pinot Noir and pairing it with your turkey.

Medium plus garnet with some ruby tinges and deep, broad aromas of plum with boysenberry and spiced tobacco, here is a gem from Oregon’s Willamette Valley purchased at the winery in 2012 and opened in September 2015.adelsheim

The palate is dry with light tannins and medium plus acidity.  Flavours are intense and show mulberry, plum, field berry and tobacco leaf with a little leather strap and baking spice.

A long finish compliments the broad nose and palate.  Beautifully made and well-balanced.  Great with the classic Westcoast pairing, salmon… and yes, turkey too.

WSET Very Good
