WALT BLUE JAY

PINOT NOIR 2015

Anderson Valley, Mendocino

TASTING NOTE: From the Anderson Valley, one of

California’s coolest growing regions, which makes

it ideal for Pinot Noir. The 2015Walt Blue Jay Pinot

Noir is fresh and ripe, with toast, strawberry, dark

cherry, chocolate, vanilla, spice and mint tones. It has

power, in a Pinot context, but maintains Pinot’s

characteristic elegance quite well. Good balance and

structure. Well made. (Vintages panel, Jan. 2017)

BRELLA PINOT NOIR 2014

Willamette Valley

TASTING NOTE: The Willamette Valley is one of the

world’s leading regions for elegant, refined, seductive

Pinot Noir, and wines such as this 2014 from Brella

show exactly why that is. Well-structured and floral,

with bright red cherry, spice, woodspice and savoury

tones, this delivers on Willamette’s characteristic

Burgundian flair. (Vintages panel, Feb. 2017)
