2015 Westmount Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Just ran into this one in the nick of time to still get the healthy
Costco sale price of $10.99, off the standard price of $15.99. Then I rushed to taste it so I could get
something out to you right away. The
sale price ends this Sunday (7/7).

The wine turned out to be pretty good, but not great in my
opinion, so all that haste might not be worth it. This is fairly priced at $10.99, but I wouldn’t
go much more than that. The first 2/3
was great, but I found the finish a little disjointed. Other readers may disagree, so please feel
free to share your opinion in the comments below.

This wine pours light, see through ruby in the glass; it has
an inviting nose that is floral, earthy and peppery. In the mouth, vibrant flavors of wild
strawberry, spicy black cherry and a touch of Dr Pepper. So we’re looking good up until this point.

But the finish left me hoping for more with the wine just
not coming together as much as I hoped. I
gave the wine some extra air, and it improved slightly, but it never quite came
to a place where I’d recommend it.

I love Willamette Valley Pinot so was excited to see the steep discount on a producer we’ve never reviewed. I almost stocked up but now I’m glad I didn’t.  For $10 (regular Costco price), I’d opt for the Firesteed Pinot if you still find that one near you.  It’s delicious, a solid pick for summer drinking and you don’t have to run to Costco over a holiday weekend to snag a sale price.
