Vino Ventures Holiday Wine Pairing

Vino Ventures Wine Tours featured our 2014 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills in their Holiday Wine Pairing. 14pndh

“here at Vino Ventures we are firm believers that great wine breeds great conversation, and nothing is better than that around your holiday dinner table. The trick is in finding the perfect pairing. We are lucky enough to live in the heart of Oregon’s Wine Country and one of its most touted varietals growing here, Pinot Noir, happens to pair brilliantly with three of the most traditional holiday meals… turkey, ham and prime rib. Why Pinot? Let’s talk a bit more about Pinot Noir!”

2014 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills ($39)
As described by Paul Gregutt of Wine Enthusiast on the Winter’s Hill Website: “This flagship blend is sourced from 25-year-old vines. It’s sharply focused and bright, the strawberry and cherry flavors front and center. The flavors have a hard candy quality, with pleasant hints of toast and caramel through the close.”

90 Point Scores from Wine Enthusiast

We are excited to announce that three of our Pinot Noirs were featured in the December issue of Wine Enthusiast Magazine that just hit shelves.
14pnbl102014 Pinot Noir Block 10 – 91 Points
“Vinified with 50% whole clusters, this pure Pommard selection is from the highest portion of the vineyard. This seems to bring slightly more definition to the wine, which puts a tangy undercoating around the bright berry flavors. There’s a pleasant lick of chocolate running through the tail.” 91 points. Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast, December 2016
Price: $49
Wine Club $41.65
14pnbl12014 Pinot Noir Block 1 – 90 Points
The aromatics suggest rose petals, while the tart fruit flavors run to raspberries and citrus. The freshness and complexity hint at further improvement over the next three to five years.” 90 Points. Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast, December 2016
