The Full Review
With packaging that plays off the oh-so-twee “keep Portland weird” brand, you might expect a radical bottling of wine. Instead, you’ll find a rather straightforward medium-to-full-bodied, rich style of Pinot. The color is dark, and aromas consist of concentrated raspberries and blueberries. The flavors are fruit-forward – particularly blueberry – and palate-coating. The blueberry notes are the only characteristics that could be considered “weird”, since this is not a typical aroma or flavor of Pinot, especially in the Willamette Valley. Try this wine if you like larger Pinots or are simply a fan of Brand Portland™.
