Youngberg Hill 2015 Cuvée Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $35

By on May 22, 2018

Wayne Bailey continues to release wines as beautiful as his iconic wine-country inn atop Youngberg Hill near McMinnville. Aromas of rose petals, strawberry and cranberry are joined by hints of espresso and mocha. The palate follows through with lovely balance flavors of strawberry, cherry and cranberry that includes a hint of smokiness in the background of this light-bodied and delicate Pinot Noir, which earned a double gold medal at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition.
