Elizabeth Chambers Cellar 2011 Willamette Valley Winemaker’s Cuvée Pinot Noir

Sometimes you just do not have time to prepare an elegant meal, but that does not mean you cannot have an elegant wine.  Elizabeth Chambers Cellar 2001 Willamette Valley Winemaker’s Cuvée is just that.

ECCPinotBright ruby in color with a nose of black cherry, cola and forest floor, this Pinot Noir is rich enough to hold up to a local farm duck egg yolk with plenty of acidity to cut through it.

Dark cherry, vanilla and cola on the palate, we noted deep forest earth as well. Impeccably balanced there is no feeling like you just fell on your face in the woods (no doubt running from Zombies with Carol and Tyreese) and swallowed a mouthful of dirt, as you do with so many earth-driven Pinots.

Lovely paired with an Everything Bagel sandwich of turkey breast, turkey pastrami and Black Forest ham complemented by low-moisture white cheese of provolone, Lacy Swiss and Muenster, as well as an over easy Duck egg.

13.3% alcohol by volume. Just released, this is a fabulous find at only $32.00

Elizabeth Chambers Cellar was founded in 2013 by Liz Chambers, a third generation Oregonian whose family was one of the early winemaking pioneers in the region. The blue butterfly on every label is a tribute to Liz’s mother Carolyn who collected them and encouraged Liz to follow her passion to make exceptional Pinot Noir.

Look at the flowers dear, then have a glass of this elegant Oregon Pinot Noir.
