Van Duzer Pinot Noir 2021
|Region||United States, Oregon|
Aromas of bright cherry, strawberry and rose petal with notes of black tea and licorice. Leading with bright red fruits and vanilla, the flavors are complex with hints of black pepper and barrel driven spices. With soft and supple tannins and brown sugar notes, this wine has a light and lingering finish.
Grape Popsicle and blood-orange aromas join notes of warm, earthy sandalwood spice and grilled meat in a snappy tango. Acid, alcohol and tannins are restrained, creating a light, creamy mouthfeel. Raspberry and black-tea flavor are joined by a touch of toasted marshmallow.
Fresh aromas of ripe red raspberry, pine, and rose petal in the 2021 Pinot Noir are followed by a straightforward red with a silky, rounded feel and a clean, modest finish. It is another wonderful table wine for near-term drinking over the next couple of years.
