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

By on September 5, 2018

Winemaker/grower Wayne Bailey works in one of the Northwest’s most iconic wine country settings, and these four barrels showcase some of that beauty he and his family share with guests of their remarkable B&B near McMinnville. Aromas of rose petals, strawberry and cranberry, with a hint of espresso and mocha. The palate pleases with balanced flavors of strawberry, cherry and cranberry, with a hint of smokiness in the background. Lovely balance in this light-bodied and delicate Pinot. This won a gold medal and best of class at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition. This fall, Bailey has scheduled a series of his Harvest Vineyard Hikes at Youngberg Hill.
