2008 Cloudline Pinot Noir Willamette Valley

Wine Description

On the nose, there is deep cherry and earth. On the palate, there is excellent weight and balance, with good structure, and substantial depth of fruit. It is a wine that offers immediate pleasure, either on its own, or better yet, in the company of a delicious meal. And though a good choice now and for any night of the week, this Cloudline is a classic Oregon Pinot Noir and can be enjoyed for several years to come. Pinot Noir is well-suited to pair with poultry, beef, fish, ham, lamb and pork. It will play well with creamy sauces, spicy seasonings and may just be one of the world’s most versatile food wines.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) A beautiful, dark ruby color, the nose develops well in the glass, and it possesses an intense aromatic bouquet, reminiscent of spices, blackcurrant and other red and black berries. On the palate, Cloudline offers a caressing texture and a long flavorful finish.

    Extra soft Pinot Noir taste. not a lot of fruit on the palate. Not much in terms of tannins. Just not an overly exciting wine.

    Cloudline wines are a project of importer Dreyfus Ashby, vinified with guidance from DDO’s Veronique Drouhin. It’s a professional product, clean and straightforward, with tart red fruits and striking acidity. The tannins, ripe and firm, provide some finishing heft. —P.G
