Styring Signature Pinot Noir 2005

We wanted something special to accompany a tasty skirt steak recently and decided it was time to open this unique bottle of 2009_1109catinthehat0001 Pinot. Styring Vineyards in Oregon’s Willamette Valley is known f or their handcrafted Pinot Noirs and this wine was a real treat. 

This beauty was smooth yet much fuller bodied than many Pinots.  It had several layers of flavor including ripe fruit, blackberries and cherries.

Oregon is the land of Pinot Noir and this selection is highly recommended. Production of this wine was limited to 120 cases.

I've had a number of bottles of this (and I'm jealously guarding one more in my cellar). Very nice juice, I'll second this recommendation - pick it up if you can find it!

Cheers.

Thank you so much for your kind words about our Pinot Noir. We hope you enjoy drinking them as much as we enjoy making them. We've just released our 2006 and it took the top prize for Oregon Pinot Noir at the NW Wine Summit.
