Mount Defiance Pinot Noir

29 Aug

Phelp’s Creek Vineyards’ Mount Defiance Wines, Pinot Noir, Columbia Gorge, OR.

In an Italian restaurant in Jackson Hole Wyoming, my first choice (Barolo) is unavailable. Perusing the list, I inquire about a wine I don’t know- and am told it’s an excellent choice, so here’s my review:

Bright ruby color; nose of young plum and boysenberry. In the mouth, lustrous strawberry with bracing acidity. Nice medium finish featuring lingering fruit. A great pairing for the salmon and English pea purée, not as good for the ricotta gnocchi but a delicious wine, and entirely enjoyable by itself.
