Brandborg Vineyard & Winery 2014 Westbrook Vineyard Pinot Noir, Umpqua Valley, $30

By on September 14, 2018

One of Oregon’s unsung stars with Pinot Noir is Terry Brandborg, who is tucked away in the quaint community of Elkton. Westbrook Vineyard near Sutherlin is the source for this Pinot Noir. The assemblage from clones 114 and 777 produced a wine with a nose of cherries, mint and spice, then flavors of cherry, raspberry, plum and spice. It finishes with crisp acidity and smooth tannins. This was one of two Pinot Noir releases to win a gold medal at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.
