2019 Division "UN" Pinot Noir Willamette Valley
This Portland, Oregon based winery was founded in 2010 by Kate Norris and Thomas Monroe. Determined to make approachable and balanced wines though minimal manipulation, the winemakers have a passion to work with well-farmed terroir expressive vineyards, many of which are organic and/or Biodynamic, celebrating the varietals the winemakers loves to drink. The aromatics on this wine start with deep spicy earthy undertones in the nose and feature ripe strawberries, cherries and dark earth tones. The palate is lithe and unique with a balance of fresh herbs, wild berry concentration and mid-palate minerality. It really delivers some great flavors and quality for the price.
