Review:

Dense nose of pie cherries envelops the senses: I can perfectly see the basket at the farmer's market. The cherries burst up front and flow with an elegant strength across the mid palate. Finishes with an Oregon spice box that McKinlay always captures in their wines. Entirely approachable now. - Andy

Seems a little crazy but the first 2012 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has arrived... and wow, has it ever!

Winemaker Matt Kinne's tiny McKinlay Vineyards has a 20+ year reputation for quality at a bargain price. Is the 2012 vintage everything it's being touted as? Judge for yourself.

Matt Kinne's McKinlay Vineyard Pinot noirs are collected by a super-loyal coterie of fans. Known for his Burgundian styling, his wines are juicy and full of rich flavors while typically offering the silky tannins and balanced acidity that allow for considerable aging. Always a super deal, Matt Kinne's Willamette Valley Pinot is always packed with juicy, dark cherry flavors. McKinlay winery owners

McKinlay Pinot noir is a synergy of four vineyards, all lying within the Chehalem Mountain range. In addition to the winery owned Estate vineyard, the La Cantera, Marquis and Tommy T sites are farmed with focus on vine health and lots of hands-on labor to produce low yields of rot free grapes that possess great concentration of flavor.

Matt Kinne makes small lots of carefully crafted Pinot noir and then sells it for a low low price. His simple labels and utter lack of marketing might make you pass this one by, but as our local Oregon customers know, his wines are super deals.

2007 Vintage

This 07 shows what a skilled winemaker who knows his vineyard can do in a difficult vintage. Matt's super value Pinot has bright berry and red cherry fruit with just a tiny hint of spice. The wine opens up in your mouth and shows hints of spice and a hint of cream. You can sip this wine, and pair with foods from pizza to turkey to lamb. Matt is truly a very talented vintner.
