Patton Valley Vineyards Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, 2018

Offered as a wine by the glass at Zingerman's Road House in Ann Arbor, MI, this Pinot Noir was delightful accompaniment to a perennial Sunday Road House favorite, Grillade and Grits.

Medium deep garnet. Pomegranate, boysenberries, cocoa and gingery spice on the nose. Good carry through on the palate. Tannin and acid interact nicely on the palate. Good concentration and grip; coats the tongue. Orange and black pepper on the finish. This wine deserves the 92 point rating it received from Wine Enthusiast and retails for $26, a good value for this level of Willamette Valley Pinot.
