​The 2017 REX HILL Willamette Valley Pinot Noir greets with scents of rich, dark berries, pomegranate, rhubarb, caramel, mulling spices, and tobacco with secondary hints of balsa wood, flint, slate and graphite. The palate is expansive and energetic with moderate tannins, balanced acidity and integrated, approachable oak. The wine is true to the Willamette Valley's cooler climate fruit and promises age worthiness. Pairs with olive oil poached salmon, mushroom risotto, mild cheeses, grilled ahi, pumpkin ravioli, pork tenderloin, proscuitto, pizza with sausage and mushrooms.

Sharply focused and refined, with expressive black cherry, smoky sandalwood and orange peel notes that pick up tension and complexity toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2028. 6,212 cases made.

At first blush this blend, from more than a dozen vineyards, falls into the generic Pinot Noir category. It seems mute and unfocused, with brambly berry and somewhat rough stem and earth components. It saw one-quarter new oak, though the impact is minimal.
