L'UMAMI WILLAMETTE VALLEY PINOT NOIR, OREGON 2019
L’Umami Pinot Noir was just reccomended by The N.Y. Times for good reason. Here is a really complete Oregon wine chock full of red plum, baking spice, pepper and a touch of earth, all with a silky as heck mouthfeel and a long finish. Pair with Duck Confit and Mushrooms.
’Umami' refers to the umami-sense that wild mushrooms often provide. The vineyards are surrounded by edible local mushrooms. The name was combined with the French sensibility of the winemaker for wines that express complexity & terroir notes often found in umami-foods like foraged mushrooms. The winemaker is the acclaimed Frenchman Laurent Montalieu of Four Graces and Solena fame.
