A to Z Wineworks
A beautiful deep, garnet red color in the glass, the 2019 A to Z Wineworks Oregon Pinot Noir presents dark cherry and red berry aromatics with hints of pomegranate, rhubarb, baking spices, cola and cedar. These are lifted by warm secondary notes of vanilla, leather, sandalwood, a hint of toast and a subtle, deeper earthy layer of forest floor and mushrooms. Succulent flavors follow on the palate: juicy, ripe red fruit and black plum, brambly blue fruits, fig compote, cocoa, and a dash of pipe tobacco and graphite. The 2019 A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir is a ridiculously food-friendly, true Oregon wine with fruit, earth, and spice notes. The smooth texture, mouth-watering acidity, and well-integrated tannins leave a silky finish.
Dancing with bright acidity that is perfectly balanced by soft tannins, our Pinot Noir is versatile enough to pair with a range of dishes, from subtle to full-flavored. We recommend rich meats like pork and duck, and full-bodied seafood like salmon. If you're feeling fancy, whip up a sweet and sour gastrique to become the food and wine hero of the universe. Not feeling fancy? Pair it with pizza from your favorite local takeout place and you just might. Our Pinot also shines at outdoor gatherings, pairing well with grilled meats and vegetables and anything covered in BBQ sauce, or simply by itself as a delicious accompaniment to quality time with your favorite people.
