Mira Luna 2013 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, Oregon
It's no secret that Oregon’s Willamette Valley wine region is known for world-class Pinot Noir. So, when we set out to produce a Pinot Noir for our Mira Luna label, we knew exactly where to source the fruit. A reflection of this unique terroir, this wine has lovely cranberry and earth nuances backed by medium acidity making it an excellent wine to pair with lamb, duck, game and stews.
This wine received a 90 point rating from Tasting Panel Magazine.
Indicative of a cooler-temperature Pinot Noir, it is between garnet and ruby in color. The wine is clean with fairly intense aromatics - warm baking spices, red berries along with a hint of dust and a note of paraffin. Bright on the palate with medium body, which is another hallmark of its Willamette roots. Although the strawberry and rhubarb fruits are still developing, the tannins have the grit of youth, speaking to an ageable wine.
