Firesteed Oregon Pinot Noir 2007

This blend of Pinots Noir sourced from the Willamette, Umpqua, Rogue and Walla Walla Valleys in Oregon makes for an interesting glass of wine. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, then 20% of the blend was barrel aged to round out the flavors.

Pale translucent ruby colors and medium body with aromas of cherries, and an earthy underbrush, followed by flavors of raspberries and strawberries. 12.5% alcohol. $15 pricetag make this a great wine to accompany a weeknight dinner.

Full disclosure: This particular bottle was a complimentary sample for Vigna Uva Vino from Firesteed Cellars.
