2015 Lustra Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

When one thinks of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir words that first come to mind might be ethereal and delicate, well this is not one of those versions. Fruit-forward and ripe, this version is more stylistically similar to Oregon's southern neighbor, California. While decidedly a crowd pleasing style, this example still has plenty of classic Pinot Noir character to win fans on both sides of the fence.
