Montinore Pinot Noir 2003
This wine is a phenomenal value for the money. It is hard to find good Pinot Noir for under $20 from anywhere –let alone Oregon, where the wineries are generally, small family-run affairs. Montinore has broken this trend with the 2003 from their 585-acre estate in the Northern Willamette Valley. Gorgeous red and black cherries, blackberries, and hints of cocoa and coffee on the nose are accompanied by a dark garnet hue. In the mouth, this silky wine shows off rich fruit flavors as well as a fine earthy finish that shows a touch of oak and vanilla. Excellent with light meats, salmon, and light sauces –or just with a great book by a fireplace.
Producer
Established in 1982, Montinore Estate is a 210-acre Demeter Certified Biodynamic® and Stellar Certified Organic estate that lies at the northern end of the Willamette Valley appellation and along the east-facing slope of the Coastal Range foothills in Oregon. Our vineyards are planted on ideal sites for the seven grape varieties we grow, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Muller-Thurgau, Teroldego and Lagrein. Our close attention to each step of the grape-growing and winemaking process is rooted in the belief that exceptional wine is born of a sustained marriage of soil, climate and artful stewardship. Biodynamic® farming, controlled fruit yields, carefully fermented wine and estate bottling help our family-run winery offer full-flavored vintages of distinctive character and quality.
