Wine Review: 2008 McKinlay Special Selection Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Happy Hour: 2008 McKinlay Special Selection Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

2008 McKinlay Pinot NoirStill searching for that ideal wine to pair with a succulent holiday roast? Consider looking into a Pinot Noir such as the 2008 Special Selection Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from McKinlay ($34).

If you've never heard of Washington-based McKinlay Vineyards, you're not alone: the winery makes less than 3,200 cases of wine each year, and they tend to sell out quickly. That's because quaffers like the moderately-priced Special Selection Pinot Noir embody the essence of an American Pinot Noir: deep, red fruit like cherries and berries, rich wintry spices, and a lot of structure without too much tannin. I'm fantasizing about serving my next bottle with a gamy roast goose. What wines are you serving with your holiday dinner?
