2011 Stoller Pinot Noir 

Dundee Hills, Oregon

Retail $24-$27

Situated in the heart of Oregon wine country, Dundee Hills is a subregion of the Willamette Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area). The terroir is similar to France's Bourgogne, and pinot noir grapes thrive during long sunny days. Over the past several decades, Stoller Family Estates converted farmland into the largest contiguous vineyard in the Dundee Hills AVA. Named Pacific Northwest 2014 Winery of the Year by Wine Press Northwest, the estate was lauded for its vineyard stewardship, environmental sustainability and award-winning wines. In the glass, the wine offers aromas of red berries, pomegranate and herbal undertones. On the palate, taste cherry, spice, black tea, minerality, a touch of earthiness, good acidity and nicely integrated tannins. Drink it with grilled tuna or salmon, rack of lamb, rotisserie chicken, duck confit, osso buco, herb roasted vegetables and cheeses such as comte, Camembert, mild cheddar, truffled Gouda and sottocenere. Buy it at: Faubourg Wines, Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket and Martin Wine Cellar in Mandeville. Drink it at: Cafe Degas, Bourbon House and The Steak Knife.
