Willamette Valley Vineyards 2010 Tualatin Estate Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $45

By on April 18, 2013

Oregon wineTualatin is one of the oldest vineyards in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Bill Fuller planted the vines near Forest Grove in 1973, and he sold the 83 acres to Jim Bernau, CEO of Willamette Valley Vineyards, in 1997. These days, Bernau maintains a tasting room at the vineyard and honors the grapes with a vineyard-designated Pinot Noir each year. This opens with aromas of cherry, blueberry and oak, followed by flavors of bright red fruit and a bit of toastiness.
