2012 is an Epic year for Oregon!
The most recent Wine Spectator magazine highlighted Oregon's 2012 vintage as an epic vintage (they rated the vintage 97 pts). After the last two vintages, being some of the coolest in record, winemakers were blessed with warm and consistent weather.
The 2012 dry summer produced Pinot's with deep color and rich fruit character. "Our more established sites came through with their personalities completely intact, " said Dave Paige from Adelsheim, "big, delicious versions of the wines we know them to be." Harry Peterson-Nedry of Chehalem said, "Storybook weather!"All of us at The Wine Gallery agree. The 2012 Pinot's we have tasted so far have been rich in flavor and voluptuous compared to the last few lean vintages; however, still well balanced with plenty of acidity.
We all know the "supply and demand" theory.... So, stop on in if you wish to purchase one of the 2012 Pinot Noir's we currently have stocked on our shelves!
The top selling 2012 Oregon Pinot Noir under $35 for us right now is Siduri Chehalem Pinot Noir.
