Cooper Mountain Vineyards Cooper Hill Pinot Noir 2011 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Cherry and ruby red grapefruit on the nose

Light bodied on the palate

Herbal notes with pomegranate on the finish


This is quite a light and delicate Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Interestingly, after drinking only half the bottle one evening, I put it in the refrigerator overnight and found it was better the second day the bottle was open. While that isn't particularly surprising for lighter and more acidic wines, it was especially obvious with this wine. It seemed more relaxed and integrated but still showed freshness.

Take this as a recommendation when you're looking for a light red. Grab a bottle for $15, and raise a glass!
