2008 Firesteed Pinot Noir Oregon

Oregon produces some excellent juice and its becoming a regular in my house. My only issue is with the selection in my area but getting better. Tonight's wine was a gift from my daughter who understands my love of Pinot.

A nice nose on this wine. Excellent ripe cherry with a beautiful clove spice. Hints of smokey cedar and fresh raspberry. The clove and cedar really mellowed the longer in the glass.

Tart cherry at first but as the wine was allowed to breathe, fresh cherry pie followed by a wonderful spice. Strawberry and red raspberry with just a slight smoke finish. I paired with grilled pork chops and as a stand alone. Nice affordable Pinot and reinforces my love of Oregon wine.
