Holloran Pinot Noir 2016
Holloran Vineyard Wines has been a small production, estate-owned winery in the Willamette Valley of Oregon since 1999. With farming techniques informed by organic and biodynamic practices, their wines reflect traditions of the Old World through unmistakably Oregon fruit. Opening with black cherry, casis, and earthy floral aromas complimented by a harmonious palate of pomegranate, black cherry, and subtle spice, Holloran’s entry-level bottling outshines many other Willamette Valley producers’ single vineyard wines. Pair this intriguing Pinot with Cornish game Hen stuffed with wild rice and mushrooms, a classic Coq Au Vin, or beet salad with carrot, quinoa, and spinach.
