Brooks 2011 Janus Pinot Noir – Wine of the Week Review
Posted By Barnaby Hughes On November 18, 2013 @ 9:55 am In Wine, Spirits, Beer & More | No Comments
Region: Willamette Valley, Oregon
Varietal: 100 percent Pinot Noir
Production: 2,014 cases
Alcohol: 12.3 percent
Tasting Notes: Although he’s not old enough to legally buy the wines he produces, 17-year-old Pascal Brooks is the sole owner of Brooks Winery. Together with his Aunt Janie, who acts as Managing Director, he continues his late father’s commitment to organic and biodynamic farming. The 2011 Janus Pinot Noir is appropriately named for the two-headed god of beginnings and transitions. Boasting earthy fruit flavors of black cherry and rhubarb with hints of cola, the wine’s low alcohol content and silky tannins give it remarkable delicacy and balance.
Food Pairings: Turkey, lamb, salmon, eggplant
