The 2012 Cloudline Pinot Noir is both elegant and forward, a combination of thevintage's ripeness and the classic Oregon pinot noir framework. Aromatically and on the palate, there are notes of dark berries and crushed fruits, with the unmistakable, layered mouth feel one expects in Pinot Noir.
Had this with ham for Xmas dinner. Yummy lean pinot, nice fruit flavor, but not a fruit bomb. $20 at Thomas Liquors in St. Paul.
One of my favorite Pinot Noir - smooth, flavorful (blackberry and chocolate) and silky touch.
Ok but not too much finish. Had with sausage and pieroggi
Nice not to sweet
