Björnson Vineyard 2014 Estate Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills, $35
University of Minnesota products Mark and Pattie Björnson developed their appreciation for Pinot Noir soon after getting married, and they are well into the second decade of their second career — Björnson Vineyard, a 28-acre planting in the Eola-Amity Hills along Bethel Heights Road. Her winemaking mentors include Ben Casteel of Bethel Heights, and this pick of Pommard, Dijon 115, 777 and Wädenswil during the third week in September leads to a bold, fruit-forward presentation of dusty black cherry and blackberry joined by pomegranate and blueberry. Suggested pairings include pork tenderloin.
