Cloudline Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
New for 2015: Cloudline’s distinctive blue label gets a fresh update, highlighting the vintage & appellation.
DESCRIPTION: Starting with the 2014 vintage 25% of the fruit comes from Domaine Drouhin's famous RoseRock Vineyard.
2015 Vintage: The warm, long growing season brought us a second straight harvest of exceptional quality. Pinot Noir is a very accurate reflection of a given season’s growing conditions, which is why the beauty of 2015 is so clear in this Cloudline.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Pinot Noir
FOOD PAIRINGS: Pinot Noir is well-suited to pair with poultry, beef, fish, ham, lamb and pork. It will play well with creamy sauces, spicy seasonings and may just be one of the world's most versatile food wines.
TASTING NOTES: On the nose, the earth and fruit clearly say Oregon. Nicely structured, with good complexity, the 2015 Cloudline Pinot Noir has deep, dark berry fruits, blue fruits and cola nuts on the nose and palate. A long, complete finish wraps the experience up nicely.
James Suckling - 92 Points
2015 Vintage: A real Oregon pinot with walnuts, plums and hints of chocolate. Medium and rounded tannins and a juicy finish. Delicious and lively. Drink and enjoy.
Cloudline Willamette Valley Pinot Gris
DESCRIPTION: The Pinot Gris, which has been previously highlighted in Food & Wine Magazine, is vinified under the careful eye of consulting winemaker Véronique Drouhin-Boss. It's made in a classic dry style with a lovely balance of ripe fruit and vibrant acidity. It is bottled under screw cap and arrives just in time for summer.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Pinot Gris
FOOD PAIRINGS: The wine suggests food pairings with every sip. Try it with most shellfish, cheeses, ceviche, sushi, and spicy cuisine, such as Thai and Indian.
TASTING NOTES: Cloudline's Pinot Gris is tank-fermented to emphasize the varietal’s freshness, acidity and floral aromatics. Citrus fruits and white flowers are abundant on both the palate and nose. The fine texture matches the light yellow hue.
