Recommended Wine Pairing

2019 Pinot Noir Watershed

This Pinot Noir is named after the community watershed that we border, and also describes the faith required to make wine. This 2019 Pinot Noir is a gorgeous example of Dundee Hills Pinot that showcases black cherry fruit, tobacco and pepper with a medium round luscious mouthfeel. The finish is long with mouthwatering acidity that is balanced out with soft drying tannin. This wine is made to enjoy now! Pair it with an array of foods such as fish, pasta, appetizers, turkey, or simply a good friend or two.
