Tasting Notes

An über-delicate Pinot that demonstrates a raw, natural edge. Completely unembellished, the clean, delicate fruit comes to the fore and presents an unrivalled pristine minerality. Great for roasted crab legs, tuna and other hearty fish. Made using whole cluster fermentation.

Staff Pick Notes

Unique Pinot Noir

Teutonic Wine Company is a small-production winery that strives to make the finest Alsatian and German-Alsatian-style wines in Oregon. France has inspired many people to invest in the Pinot Noir grape. But this grape has an attitude and is very difficult to grow. So only a few can make magic with Pinot Noir. This one has a rust color, an aroma of dried fruit, dried red berries, minerals, earth and some floral components. The taste seems like a wine from the past. Light-bodied and lively with high acid and mild perceptible tannins, unripe strawberry and cranberry tartness, mineral notes, and a whisper of light tea. Try this with grilled Chilean Sea Bass.

Oregon

The largest wine region in Oregon is the Willamette Valley, lying between the cities of Portland and Eugene and home to most of Oregon’s wineries. As it does not have one homogeneous climate, it has been broken up into several different AVAs. In the best of them, the perfect amounts of wind, rain, sun exposure, and altitude combine to give Pinot Noir the warm days and cool nights it needs in...
