Gooseneck is based in Rhode Island but sources wines from around the world. This Pinot Noir was produced at River's Edge in the Elkton Oregon AVA. Like the previous vintage, it offers excellent quality at a budget price. Dense black fruit layered with American and French barrel flavors, like coffee, mocha, smoke and chocolate, complement the black cherry-like appeal of its Pommard clone fruit.
