Wine Review: 2011 Tendril TightRope Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon

Tony Rynders with all his current endeavors might be stretched a little thin, however he is still walking the Tightrope pretty well if this wine is any indication of his efforts overall.

The 2011 vintage in Willamette Valley did not produce a lot of overtly intense wines; fortunately for Tendril, this wine was about as big as Pinot noir gets from Oregon. Five years into its journey, this wine is holding up fine and will hold steady for at least another five.

Beef bourguignon or Easter Ham would be the perfect accompaniment.

Rating: Excellent (91) | $64 | 13.5 % ABV
