Elouan Oregon Pinot Noir, 2015

Pinot Noir bottle shot horizontalI was a bit disappointed when I first smelled and tasted this Oregon Pinot Noir. My first impressions were focused on ginger, cinnamon and other baking spices that I usually associate with California Pinots from cheaper appellations of California. Rich and full bodied on the palate--not really the traits I am most looking for in an Oregon Pinot Noir. Over the course of the meal, though, the wine opened nicely. Cranberry and cherry fruit with good depth on the finish.
