Searching for a solid new wine to raise your spirits? Look no further than Et Fille Oregon Pinot Noir.
2015 was a sensational year for Pinot Noir, and the Et Fille Kalita Vineyard Pinot Noir is no exception.
Et Fille, which means “and daughter”, represents the hand-in-hand collaboration of its co-founders, father-daughter team Howard and Jessica Mozeico. They have been making wine from the Kalita Vineyard since 2004, and the fruit keeps becoming more complex and richer each year. Kalita Vineyard, owned by Arthur and Sherry Kalita, is a beautiful bowl-shaped vineyard ranging between 400-800 feet in elevation, located in the Yamhill-Carlton district of Oregon.
With a 92 Point rating from James Suckling, this bright, balanced, and elegant wine has a black cherry and chamomile aroma that gives way to a plum and orange peel palate with a lush, expansive texture and a long finish.
April is Pinot Noir Month in Colorado. You can celebrate this universally loved, food friendly style by stopping by or engaging delivery from local, family-owned wine emporiums, like Wyatt’s Wet Goods.
UPDATE: Et Fille is one of the featured wines in this weekend’s Sunday One Day Sale on April 5th.
