The Oddbins Take

Oregon, “the beaver state”, has 26 official emblems. These include a crab, a predatory sea snail called the Oregon Hairy Triton, a square dance, milk, a rock called thunderegg and the Oregon-grape. Common sense would say that this last one should be Pinot Noir, seeing as how Willamette Valley is on the same latitude as Burgundy and its wines have beaten French rivals in blind tastings. But it’s not, it’s a shrub used to make jam. Oregonians are clearly bonkers. This wine is so good it should run for Governor of this crazy state.

Oz Clarke/Salvatore Calabrese in Cheers 11/13: "Oregon Pinot Noir is taking great strides to become the 'new Burgundy' - and this wine proves that they're getting there. It's mellow yet focused, with with delicately flavoured squashy strawberries and plums, sprinkled with herbs."
This is a Pinot Noir from the Pacific North West coast of the USA made by the world famous Burgundian wine family. Created in 1988 by the Drouhin family and spanning 90 acres in Oregon’s Red Hills, Domaine Drouhin has become a worldwide force to be reckoned with. They attempt to be true to the classic Burgundian elegance and grace but introduce New World influences.
