Grochau Cellars 'Commuter Cuvée' Pinot Noir 2016 Review

The sustainably-farmed Commuter Cuvée is the epitome of classic Willamette Valley Pinot Noir: slightly confected but fresh cherry cola-like aromas supplemented by notes of mint, cinnamon, red flowers, and dark, wet soil. More weight and spice comes through on the palate, and as a bonus, a portion of the proceeds of each bottle go to charity.
