2014 Cherry Cove Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Oregon Produced and Bottled By Coleman Vineyards
Purchased from my go to local wine store (First Avenue Wine House), this 2014 Cherry Cove Pinot Noir ($20 and 14.1% alcohol) is a delicious Oregon wine.
Coleman Vineyards at an elevation between 300-500 feet is located in the Coast Range foothills of Yamhill County and consists of 22.5 acres of vines. Owners Randy and Kim Coleman produce Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, many which are estate wines. Their philosophy is to allow the terroir to show in each wine with minimal wine making intervention.
The nose shows deep dark cherry fruit with hints of cloves and cinnamon spice.Continue to swirl and nice earthy tones appear.
The mouth is rich with dark cherry and raspberry followed by a pronounced clove spice. The finish lingers long dominated by juicy cherry. A steal for $20 and drinks much more expensive.
If you're in Oregon I would add this winery to your lists of visits especially if you like Pinot like I do. The tasting room is located in town 801 SW Baker St McMinnville and open Tue-Sun 11-5.
