Professional Wine Reviews for Owen Roe Kilmore Pinot Noir 2014

Rated 92 by Wine Enthusiast
Sourced from several vineyards within the AVA, this shows lightly peppery Bing cherries with streaks of sassafras, cola and dark chocolate. The wine gains amplitude and weight as it breathes open. The finish brings flavors of cherry pie and a hint of butter.
Rated 91 by Decanter
Dark red. Pungent, floral- and spice-accented aromas of dark berries and incense are lifted by a smoky mineral quality. Sappy and broad on the palate, offering gently sweet blackberry and cherry cola flavors and a touch of peppery spices. The floral and smoke notes come back strong on the powerful finish, which clings with good tenacity and chewy, slow-mounting tannins. This brawny Pinot benefits greatly from aeration. (Vinous)

Winery Owen Roe

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Regularly described as being the grape varietal responsible for producing the world's most romantic wines, Pinot Noir has long been associated with elegance and a broad range of flavors The name means 'black pine' in French, and this is due to the fact that the fruit of this particular varietal is especially dark in color, and hangs in a conical shape, like that of a pine cone. Despite being grown today in almost every wine producing country, Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficult grape variety to cultivate. This is because it is especially susceptible to various forms of mold and mildew, and thrives best in steady, cooler climates. However, the quality of the fruit has ensured that wineries and vintners have persevered with the varietal, and new technologies and methods have overcome many of the problems it presents. Alongside this, the wide popularity and enthusiasm for this grape has ensured it will remain a firm favorite amongst wine drinkers for many years to come.

A wide range of grape varietals flourish in Oregon, including an impressive array of Old World classic grapes alongside American hybrid varietals.

Wine is actually produced in all fifty states across the country, with California leading the way by an enormous margin.
