Oregon Territory 2016 Pinot Noir (Oregon)

Editors' Choice

Once again this budget label from Paul O'Brien offers exceptional value. Barrel aged for a year in 25% new French oak, it includes 20% Willamette Valley grapes, with the rest from the Umpqua Valley. A portion of whole clusters were included, and the fermentation was done in both concrete and French oak foudres. Some flavors of earth and stem come through, and a certain astringency from the concrete, along with brambly black cherry fruit and chewy tannins. Paul Gregutt
