2018 Larkspur Dundee Oregon Pinot Noir
13.8% alc., $9.99 (with grocery store 6-pack purchase). Easily located in your favorite supermarket (Kroger, Fred Meyer, Fry’s etc.). Winemaker is Sarah Cabot who has several years of winemaking experience with Pinot Noir in the Willamette Valley. Vineyard sources and vinification details not available. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Welcoming aromas of black cherry and subtle oak spice. Silky in the mouth and very easygoing, with a core of black cherry fruit accented with a hint of spice. The tannins are well-proportioned, oak is well-mannered, and the dry, lip-smacking finish has a little length. This wine will not lead to an epiphany but will work as a satisfying everyday quaff. Score: 88. Reviewed May 25, 2020 ARTICLE »
