A to Z Wineworks Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon|
|Brand||A to Z Wineworks|
Clear and vibrant, the 2014 A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir opens with rich primary aromas of strawberries, cherries, blueberries, raspberries, even cranberries, developing to violets, red currants, pipe tobacco, iron and wet stone. The attack is beautifully balanced between richness and brightness with hints of roses, honeysuckle, red and blue fruit flavors. The mid-palate reveals ripe tannins and crisp acidity with a touch of minerality and spice (cinnamon, anise, saffron, sandalwood) lending greater complexity. This wine, succulent with great concentration, finishes long and rich with classic Oregon freshness. The harmony and depth of the 2014 Oregon vintage are on full display in the 2014 A to Z Wineworks Pinot Noir. Built for mid-term aging, this wine has great integrity and should drink well on release and for the next 3-5 years.

What can be asked of a $22 Oregon Pinot Noir? Decent depth, varietal flavor, well-managed tannins-all present and accounted for here. There's a mix of red and blue berries, and a wash of wet stone adding texture to the mouthfeel. The finish falls a bit short, but that's what separates it from the pricier bottles.
Tart and perky, this fruit-forward red offers cherry and black tea accents that finish with lively tannins. Drink now through 2023. 161,801 cases made.
