Mission Briefing

Codename:

Cherry Bomb

With its rolling hillsides and cool ocean breezes sweeping its South to North axis, the Eola-Amity Hills is paradise for Pinot Noir. In classic Oregon style, today’s wine truly expresses what this region is well known for, bridging the sensibilities of the Old World style of Pinot with the ripe, upfront fruitiness of the Pacific Northwest.

Invitingly vibrant, this beauty shines with a bright ruby core fading to a glowing purple rim that instantly greets the eye. On the expressive nose, bold black cherries seeped in exotic spices, sage, sun dried tomatoes and pink peppercorns abound. The palate blooms with strawberry, rhubarb and pomegranate nuances, all laced with a pleasant, refreshing herbal savoriness. Long and spicy on the persistent finish, with an earthy traction and a glorious buildup of lingering, velvety texture. Certainly a food wine that calls for a roast free range chicken or game with sweet root vegetables.

An urban winery in Portland, Gersing Cellars seeks out some of the best vineyards in the prime appellations of Oregon to put these personality rich wines and this Pinot Noir is a truly classy rendition at an unbeatable price point.
