Andrew Rich Prelude Pinot Noir 2014
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Wine EnthusiastA vertical red stripe reads "Twentieth Anniversary" along the left side of the front label. One suspects that such a milestone receives special care, and this certainly shows it. Aromatic with scents of cherries and blossoms, this is supported on a firm, almost steely frame of acid and tannin, and dotted with hints of herb and seed and grain. It's not a big wine, but given its chance, should age gracefully for up to a decade.
Wine SpectatorFirm and peppery around a core of black cherry and plum flavors, dancing with floral and smoky overtones as the finish persists against crinkly tannins. Best from 2018 through 2022. 2,245 cases made.
