2013 Westbrook Pinot Noir

2013 Westbrook Pinot Noir


The Westbrook Vineyard was first planted to Dijon Clones 114 and 777 in 1999 on a SSW facing slope near Calapooya Creek., 20 miles inland from Elkton.  The shallow soils are siltstones borne of the greater Umpqua drainage lain down over basalt bedrock.  These low vigor vines produce small clusters of intensely colored and flavored fruit.  

The wine has a nice garnet color, with some purple tinges around the edge of the glass.  The aromas combine a deep touch of ripe blackberries, some candied cherry with an intriguing herbal, dusty quality.  In the mouth the cherries seem more tart with some damson plum and dark fruits, marion berry and cassis.  The tannins and fruit smooth the acidity which is quite high in this wine.  The finish is full and the acids linger in your mouth for a long time.  

This is an excellent food wine and would pair well with a creamy mushroom risotto and grilled lamb with a red wine reduction sauce.
