Robb Report 10 Best Pinot Noirs

Robb Report published a story, titled “The 10 Best New Pinot Noirs From Oregon’s Willamette Valley, One of the Country’s Top Wine Regions”.   Pinot Noir was first planted in the Willamette Valley in the 1960’s, and accounts for double the amount of plantings of all other varieties combined.  The Willamette Valley is home to more than 700 wineries.  Many French families have settled in the area, called the “Burgundy of the  Pacific Northwest”.  The author describes its New World versions of Pinot Noir as “concentrated yet elegant”, pairing well with white meats. Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Noir Reserve 2018 is described here as “cherry red with aromas of strawberry and red raspberry and is spicy at first sip with notes of anise, clove, and dried Mediterranean herbs accenting the red fruit flavors.”
