Illahe Pinot Noir 2013
Review by Eric Tansey, CSW
Hand crafted, sustainably farmed, and family-made since 1983, from the Willamette (pronounced Will-am-it, dammit) Valley in Oregon. Sustainable farming is a practice that puts an emphasis on the environment as a whole. The goal in using this technique is to leave the earth in better shape than before the vines were planted on it. Sustainable farming simply means, farming practices that will allow the land to be farmed without causing damage to the eco-system and the community around it while minimizing the carbon footprint, so that the environment in its entirety will be preserved or even improved. This winery goes as far as to hand pick the grapes and till the land with horse and carriage. It has a beautiful story, a nice label, and the juice is outstanding, making this wine very fun to sell. Aromas of cherries and dark fruits layered with the smell of earth and dirt. The palate shows characteristics of sour cherry, strawberry and plum, a truly wonderful expression of Willamette Valley terroir. Light body, bright acidity and light tannins. Pair with duck, rabbit, lamb, turkey, ham, or even some halibut.
