More than any other state, Oregon is famous for its Pinot Noirs. These wines are ripe and well balanced, showing the grape at its best.
Oregon produces some of the world's best Pinot Noirs. This is a difficult grape to grow. Oregon's cool growing season suits it perfectly. The wines of Oregon's Pinot Noirs are often compared to those of Burgundy, France. Joseph Drouhin of Burgundy was so impressed with Oregon's wines that he began a vineyard there. The Domaine Drouhin Oregon brings "French soul to Oregon soil." These are now considered some of the finest American Pinot Noirs.

This Willamette Valley wine is bold and agressive, show casing the lushness of the Pinot Noir grape.
Argyle 2003 Reserve Pinot Noir
Yes, that's a screw cap on the bottle. It will make it that much easier to get to this great wine. This wine looks like you scooped plum jam and put in your glass. The flavors echo the looks with juicy, jammy flavors of plum, black cherries, and dark chocolate. I'm planning on serving this with a great leg of lamb.
Domaine Drouhin Oregon 2003 Pinot Noir
This wine shows the playful side of Pinot Noir. Your nose is greeted with aromas of spring flowers, licorice, and wild berries. The flavors are of dark berries, cherries, pepper, and a hint of earthiness. A wonderful picnic wine!
Willamette Valley Vineyards 2005 Whole Cluster Pinot Noir
A wine that has a perfect balance of sweetness and spice. It will remind you of spring strawberries, but without being cloying. It is well-balanced, with a nice feel in your mouth. This is a good wine to pair with grilled ork chops with rosemary
