- Biggio Hamina Pinot Noir Chehalem Mt 2013 Product #30925 (In Stock)
How does a $40 Willamette Pinot that earned a fine 91 point rating in 2012 end up available too you from half-off? It’s a long story, but the conclusion is simple: this is the Oregon Pinot Noir buying opportunity of the year and one of the best Pinot deals we’ve brought you ever! From a tiny, 2 acre, vineyard at 800 feet elevation in Oregon’s Chehalem Mountain region, this blends a range of Pinot clones all grown on volcanic Jory soils.
It's a great example of the elegant, pure, and very refreshing wines that represent the best of Oregon’s 2013 harvest. You'll find a lovely perfume of crushed raspberry, fresh strawberry, and red pie cherry fruit with hints of lavender and spice. Pure, vibrant, and silky on the palate, the ripe and tangy cherry/berry fruit takes center stage with subtle accents of spice and smoked stone. The smoky notes are a hallmark of Willamette Valley's volcanic Jory soils and gain depth and intensity with time in the glass. The perfumed fruit and smoke finish sales on over juicy acids and fine tannins. Light (12.8% abv) and fresh enough to just enjoy on its own but with enough structure to sing with salmon and fish, mushrooms or white meats from the grill.
