In the 1830s, rugged explorers traveled west on the Oregon Trail. After months of treacherous voyaging, they were rewarded with the fertile hills of the Willamette Valley – the geological history of the land reveals rich deposits of marine sediment and volcanic soil. Viticulture was a natural fit for the land, earning international acclaim as early as 1904. Today, the spirit of these explorers lives on in Oregon Trails Wine Co.Learn More
2016 Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley - 20.99
A deep, garnet wine fills the glass. Aromas of cranberry, red currant, and tart cherry layer together, complemented by a hint of earth and spice. On the palate, this medium bodied wine shows bright notes of raspberry and strawberry, followed by baking spices, earthiness, and an additional note of tart cherry returning on the finish. Structured and well-balanced, this wine is expressive of the region and the vintage.
