Averaen 2021 Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

Editors' Choice

Cherry fans need to rally around this bottle. The wine's sweet, black-cherry aroma is almost cassis like in its intensity. Notes of orange, pine needles and forest floor add interest, but from the backseat. The palate features a lighter cherry flavor—perhaps Bing or Rainier—with notes of thyme and seared steak. The wine feels fresh and lively in the mouth, with brilliant acidity. Michael Alberty
