Trinity Vineyards Pinot Noir Willamette Valley

The picturesque agricultural region of Willamette Valley in Oregon is as magical as it is delectable! The Willamette Valley is 150 miles long and is the location of almost 70% of the state’s population. The Willamette River runs the whole length of the valley with mountain ranges enveloping the valley on three sides which enhances the terroir into an excellent grape growing climate! The Parker family realized this years ago when they purchased their vineyard in Salem and developed it into their own dream come true. They named it “Trinity” for the 3 family members who began this wonderful wine making adventure. Trinity Vineyards grows around 7 different grape varietals and I am currently enjoying the 2014 Trinity Vineyards Pinot Noir. The Willamette Valley is perfect for Pinot Noir and the flavors of the terroir are definitely incorporated into the deliciousness of this wine.

In my glass, a beautiful ruby red in color. Aromas of ripe black cherry, raspberry, cocoa, anise, herbs, and exotic spices. Full bodied, velvety, with a very elegant tannin structure. Bright flavors of lush black cherry, plum, red currants, earth, and lovely spices. Wonderfully fruit forward with a great balance of fruit, spices, and acidity. On my next experience, pronounced black cherry was the main focus, more red berry, hints of tobacco and herb, all leading to a graceful vanilla oak finish. I am loving the delicious cherry notes and how fresh and vibrant it lingers on my palate. A very nice accompaniment with foods like salmon, pork roast, roasted chicken or game birds, tomato based pastas, Portobello Mushroom Burgers, Mediterranean salads, and medium to strong cheeses. We paired this wine with Lobster Ravioli with tomato sauce and it was perfect! This 2014 Trinity Vineyards Pinot Noir has aged well and it is an excellent Pinot Noir for the price. 93 Points! (Wine Splash). The Willamette Valley magic is definitely in this bottle!
