Oregon has thoroughly established itself as a top producer for Pinot Noir. The Willamette Valley just south of the capital Portland is the prime spot where 90% of Pinot Noir is grown. The stiff breeze straight from the Pacific is only buffered by gentle hills, preserving a snappy acidity. Oregon Pinot Noirs are more subtle than their Californian counterparts with notes of dried cranberries and enticing earthiness. French oak is the preferred method of ageing, adding further complexity. The whole region experiences exceptional growth and gives Burgundy a run for its money. Feel dazzled by what the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Here is Falstaff’s selection of the best.
