Mimi Casteel, owner/winemaker of Hope Well Wine, picked these grapes from an assortment of rows around the vineyard, then separated the same lot of Pinot noir into three; Monday’s Child, Tuesday’s Child, and Sunday’s Child. The first two were made into rosé wine, and this wine was treated like a traditional Pinot. While the rosés were being bottled and released, Sunday’s Child continued to slumber for a total of 10 months in 100% neutral French oak within the winery. While this wine is available for sale on its own, if curiosity gets the best of you, Hope Well Wine offers all three packaged together too.
This wine was filled with all my favorite Oregon Pinot aromas! Smells of tart cranberries, ripe cherries, and pomegranates leaned into earthy notes of gravel dust, mushrooms, forest floor, and cedar.
Textured, layered savory flavors of dried herbs, including rosemary and thyme, took center stage with my first sips. Then dashes of white pepper sprinkled on tart cranberries emerged, followed closely by robust tannins and acidity. This Pinot was built for age so buy several bottles and sip them over the next decade or so.
Food pairing suggestions:
Roast pork with herbs and fennel // fried morel mushrooms // Spanish or seafood paella
