I picked this up through Full Pull Wines back in February and was intrigued by its mystery. A Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from a super premium house, where the juice is blended from the winery’s three single vineyards. It’s 100% AVA and the birthplace winery sells the similar AVA blend for $65+. So grabbing this at $19.99 seemed like a no brainer. This is the blessing and the curse of producing more quality juice than you need. Occasionally, it finds it’s way into off-label bottling at a fraction of the cost.

After tasting the Salt Flat Pinot Noir 2019, this wine clearly exudes QPR. While I can’t tell you with 100% confidence whose juice is in the bottle, I have a pretty good idea and there is no way you can go wrong if you get your hands on this one.

I agree with Full Pull’s assessment that the nose is somewhere between the Willamette Valley and the Cote de Nuits in Burgundy. Medium bodied, the wine displays a wide aromatic range of flavors, including strawberry, raspberry, spices, fresh floral notes, and earthier notes like mushroom and truffle. This is a balanced wine, with a lot of complexity and a long finish. If you’re looking for a Pinot Noir with juice that sells for triple it’s price, this is for you.
