Winemaker's Note: Immediately seductive, a complex nose expresses aromas of Bing cherry and boysenberry, followed closely by distinctive and captivating notes of minerality, cola and lavender. The palate is seamless from start to finish, beginning with a bright and silky entry that transitions to an ample core of dark cherry and wild blackberry. An elegant and lasting finish lingers with traces of dark chocolate and earth.
"Planet Oregon is not really a place but a state. Named after a state, Planet Oregon is really more a state of mind. You know like a worldview, frame of mind, attitude, approach, way of thinking, mindset and/or outlook. It’s the way we look at our world, our planet. We want what we do in this world and on this planet to matter. We want our actions to be healthy and not harmful, for ourselves, other people, other creatures, and, of course, the planet. We want our work to be delicious, fun loving, regenerative, worth doing, worth sharing, worth sustaining." – Tony Soter
Expert Review: This was a good, occasionally very impressive range of wines. The Planet Oregon Pinot Noir serves as a great introduction to Oregon Pinot Noir, for just two ten dollar bills, by doing nothing more than being a delicious, straightforward, easy-drinking Pinot Noir.
