The Cloudline label was launched in 2002 as an affordable introduction to Pinot Noir from Oregon’s Willamette Valley. "The idea was to have a really delicious Oregon wine that was obviously Pinot Noir and obviously a Drouhin wine," explains General Manager David Millman. It’s a label that continues to improve and evolve, with 25 percent of the grapes now coming from the winery’s own RoseRock Vineyard to flesh out Pinot Noir purchased from local growers. This is a ripe and enjoyable expression, with fresh acidity and gentle tannins that nicely balance the core of juicy fruit and attractive smoke and spice notes. Recommended.
