Ostia Tempore - Willamette Valley - Oregon - Pinot Noir - Eola-Amity Hill - red - 2016 - 750ml
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“The 2016 vintage brought plenty of heat, but pockets of cool weather during the summer tempered the grapes' ripeness, at least compared to the previous two vintages. I've tasted a sufficient number of 2016 Willamette Pinots to know they are generally polished and sleek, so easy to drink on their own, yet with enough fresh acidity to sing with food. For those who prefer the classic style of Willamette Valley Pinots—light on their feet, with red fruit flavors and lively acidity—you'll find more such examples among the 2016s than in the two previous vintages.” The Wine Spectator
The Willamette Valley is an American Viticultural Area which lies in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. It is the wine growing region which encompasses the drainage basin of the Willamette River. It stretches from the Columbia River in the north to just south of Eugene in the south, where the Willamette Valley ends; and from the Oregon Coast Range in the west to the Cascade Mountains in the east. At 5,200 square miles (13,500 km2), it is the largest wine region in the state, and contains most of the state's wineries. The boundaries of the Willamette Valley were established in 1984. The Willamette Valley has a cool, moist climate, and is recognized worldwide for its Pinot noir.
