This Week’s Friday Wine Down: Bridlemile Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

About This Wine

Fed by cool winds from the Columbia Gorge, Dundee Hills AVA is the perfect climate for this cuvee, produced in collaboration with renowned Oregon Pinot Noir maker Archery Summit. Expansive and expressive, this Willamette Valley Pinot Noir shows a completeness – a stylish comfort in its own skin.

Tasting Notes

Aged in new French oak, this premium Pinot opens with wood violet and cocoa aromas, uncovering flavors of black cherry and spice.

Blend

100% Pinot Noir

Serving, Pairing & Gifting

Framed by chewy tannins and lingering impressively, this Pinot Noir pairs exceptionally well with grilled vegetables, herb roasted pork tenderloin, blackened chicken or oven baked salmon filets. Bridlemile should be decanted for at least 30 minutes before tasting, and cellaring will reward the collector. Give Bridlemile Dundee Hills Pinot Noir as a gift, in a number of gorgeous presentations! (Our favorite is the Burl Wood box).
