McMinnville, Oregon / $17-$22 Retail

This biodynamic Pinot Noir from the family-owned Maysara vineyards was crafted by the proprietors' three daughters. The wine is full bodied with wonderful intensity and delightful finesse. In the glass, a swirl elicits both dark and red fruit aromas with cocoa, spice and earth notes followed by appealing flavors of wild berries, red and black cherry, raspberry, some cassis and more spice. It has balanced acidity, silky tannins and a lingering finish. Open an hour before serving. It is ready to drink now, but it will improve over the next several years. Pair it with salmon, tuna, lamb or beef kebabs, duck or pizza. Buy it at: Swirl Wines, Wine Seller and The Wine Market. Drink it at: NOLA, Commander's Palace and Obelisk Wine Bar. — Brenda Maitland
