The Coming Of Age Of Oregon Pinot Noirs

Posted by portlandia on

“..tasting pinot noirs from the Willamette Valley in Oregon was exciting. The wines were delicious, and I was pleased to find so many of them in a lovely, restrained style that invited rather than overpowered.  These, I would like to think, are the sorts of wines that inspired those far-sighted pioneers back in the late 1960s and 1970s who imagined that Willamette would be a great place to grow pinot noir.” – By Eric Asimov, The New York Times
