Tasting Notes: Third-generation Oregonian vintner Liz Chambers founded her eponymous label in 2013. The winery and tasting room are located in McMinnville’s historic power station building. Winemaker Michael Stephens brings more than 20 years of experience to his craft, carefully selecting grapes from the finest Willamette Valley vineyards. Marking the winery’s first nationally distributed release, the 2011 Winemaker’s Cuvée Pinot Noir is sourced from Freedom Hill and Lazy River Vineyards. It is an extraordinarily elegant and balanced wine, exhibiting fragrant berry and floral aromas. In the mouth, the wine reveals cherry, raspberry and plum flavors with a touch of candied spice and a silky mouthfeel.
Food Pairings: Veal parmesan, smoked ham, roast duck breast, mushroom risotto
