2019 Montinore Estate Pinot Noir Red Cap Willamette Valley

2019 Montinore Estate Pinot Noir Red Cap Willamette Valley

Montinore’s Red Cap Pinot noir spends ten months in French and Hungarian oak, 20 percent new. The robe is the color of black cherries but limpid, and the fragrance suggests cherries, too, plus laundry on the line and faint mint. The palate is light-textured, juicy, with firm acidity and a core of red cherry-strawberry fruit. It’s lightly astringent, with a sense of wintergreen at the finish, which makes this a cleansing wine that demands food. Try lamb with mint, kid, roasted chicken thighs, savory pastries.
