From the bottle:
There are no shortcuts to a great bottle of wine. Extreme attention to detail, from vine to bottle, allows a great wine to reflect a specific place and vintage. These principles are evident in our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Comprised of fruit from premier sites in the Willamette Valley AVA, this wine mirrors why the region is synonymous with world-class wine.
Produced and Bottled by Stoller Family Estate
The 2021 Stoller Willamette Valley Pinot Noir opens with lots of fleshy red fruit notes along with some baking spice. It's quite harmonious especially after it has some air.
Taking a sip reveals a smooth, balanced and tasty wine once it has time to breathe. It features similar flavors to the nose with juicy fruit in the mouth and was actually at its best on day 2 where it had developed lots of harmonious spice notes throughout.
It ends dry and long.
