The 2013 Cloudline has a brilliant ruby color and medium body,which is true to Oregon Pinot Noir. On the nose and following through on the palate, I find bright red and black cherries, with a framework of cola nut and ripe dark fruit. Tannins are soft, and the finish is graceful. This is a wine to enjoy tonight, or sometimein the next 3-5 years.
Pinot Noir is well-suited to pair with poultry, beef, fish, ham, lamband pork. It will pair well with creamy sauces, spicy seasonings and may just be one of the world's most versatile food wines
