The Pacific Northwest has no shortage of stories about the hunt for mythical creatures. It has been said that the legendary Sasquatch lives deep in the misty rainforests of the peninsula, …or was that high on a peak in the Cascades? Either way there are always alleged sightings of the colossal creature, but no actual proof of its existence.
It’s a bit like the search for a well structured pinot noir for everyday drinking.
Jackelope Wine Cellars 2015 Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir proves that such a thing does exist. The wine’s deep plummy depths reveal flavors of raspberry, crushed stones, cherry, and subtle baking spices on the finish. The wine drinks well over two days. It’s a fuller bodied style of pinot noir with characteristic higher acidity making it a good choice by the glass or alongside dinner.
