2021 Brick House Vineyards Select Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge Oregon USA
When Mother Nature offers a bountiful year, they routinely bottle this entry level Pinot Noir. As the name implies, the “Select” is a selection of barrels representing all the vineyard blocks on the farm at the discretion of the winemaker.
The most easy-going and approachable of all the Pinot Noirs, the “Select” is an estate grown wine that makes a worthy accompaniment to a casual meal of salmon, lamb or wild game.
Like velvet in a glass, this appealing red has a fleshy, lingering texture, offering delicate notes of fresh raspberry and brambly cherry, with orange peel and violet accents.
