"I reckon I'll have me some of that there Peanut Nore."

It has been said that people who love Pinot Noir have only worn a suit and tie a handful of times in their life. There’s definitely something in the relaxed, ethereal beauty of Pinot Noir that appeals to the more emancipated side of human nature and that particular quality is to be found here in this delicious example from America’s answer to Burgundy, Oregon. Aromatically rich and open-knit with a seductive perfume of cherries, raspberries and blueberries, a sprinkling of savoury spice and an earthy, almost sappy note that adds depth. The palate is wonderfully silky and the flavours hang on beautifully, set against slinky tannins and a vibrant, juicy acidity. This is hand-crafted, small production (around 1,000 cases are made) Pinot Noir from an expensive post-code and made by one of the hottest pair of hands in the Willamette Valley, so even at £28.95 this gets a big thumbs up for relative value in our books. 13% alc.

Press review:

The Wine Advocate:
"Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2014 Pinot Noir Dopp Creek has a very expressive nose of red currant jelly, raspberry preserves and mulberries with hints of violets, Marmite toast, truffles and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with generous red berry preserves and earthy flavor layers with a solid frame of velvety tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long with an herbal lift." 90 points
