2021 Cristom Pinot Noir Louise Vineyard, USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Eola-Amity Hills, Wine Review
Ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cherries, spice and a slight cola note. Medium bodied. On the palate, this is a bit bigger and more intense (in a good way) than I might have expected for this wine. Black cherries, sour cherries, with some tobacco/forest floor. There is some depth but it will take some cellaring to unwind the complexity. Long finish. Hold for another five to eight years and drink for ten to fifteen after that. The classic pairing would be Salmon. Plenty of upside on the score as it matures.
