Jigsaw 2016 Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley Login AG 90 WS 88 In Stock

More wine. Less hype.

Jigsaw Wine Company felt there was a need for "Pinot for the People." Their mission is to consistently deliver a delicious, food-friendly and thoughtful Pinot Noir that is true to the grape variety, respectful to the vineyard sites of the region in which it is grown, and affordable to more people for drinking on a regular basis with family and friends. Salut!

About Local Wine and Spirits: With a dream and no money, Local Wine and Spirits the old fashioned way, begged, borrowed and stole till they could get their wings. In 2002 they released their first wine, Jigsaw Pinot Noir. With the help of a few friends, they expanded their wine production to the Eastern Washington high desert. From there they went south to the volcanic soils and jagged mountains of Northern California. They choose sites where grape varieties over-perform, consistent with soil and climate and make delicious wines. Then a few years later, they began producing craft spirits with Tad Seestedt in the Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA. Their goal is simple: make fantastic wines, representative of place and vintage and make craft spirits in the ethos of 19th century American distilling.

Reviews

  • Jigsaw 2016 Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
    Vinous
    Rating: 90 (6/13/2019)

    High-pitched red fruit and floral scents, along with a hint of blood orange. Smooth and spicy on the palate, offering gently sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of smokiness that builds with air. A bitter chocolate nuance emerges on the persistent, focused finish, which features repeating red fruit character and fine-grained tannins.

    Frisky and full of fruit, with user-friendly raspberry and toasted spice flavors. Drink now through 2021.
