Panther Creek 2015 Schindler Vineyard Pinot Noir | Briscoe Bites Review

April 12, 2019 Panther Creek 2015 Schindler Vineyard Pinot Noir

Today we’re taking a venture over to the Eola-Amity Hills AVA of the greater Willamette Valley, Oregon. Another beautiful Pinot Noir from Panther Creek and—sorry, no—this one does not come with a slice of pizza.  (Though, it totally could.)

About the Wine: The Panther Creek 2015 Schindler Vineyard Pinot Noir is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes sourced from Shindler Vineyard in the Eola Amity Hills AVA of Willamette Valley, Oregon. The wine aged in 100% French oak barrels (35% new) for 8 months.

14.5% ABV

Flavor Profile: Open the bottle of the Panther Creek 2015 Schindler Vineyard Pinot Noir to breathe in unctuous aromas of blackberry jam and a kind of red-meat, au jus-like umami. This Pinot Noir presents a light pink-rouge on the pour, settling into the glass just the same color, but with a more luminescent hue.

Initial aromas are bright with cranberry and boysenberry, with subtle hints of florals and a vivacious acidic line. Breathe deep—can you smell just a bit of an ocean breeze? Swirl, and add a bit of cacao and herbaceous notes like basil or mint. Float the nose just above the glass to find the dust of the earth sprinkled amongst the fruit and florals.
