Through brilliant medium ruby color, the 2018 Landform Pinot Noir is a wine with a very expressive personality. Leading with compelling aromas of freshly-crushed cherry, strawberry, and raspberry. On the palate, the wine is refreshing, with a structure that is surprisingly full-bodied and seamless from start to finish. There is just enough texture to provide a sense of vibrant energy, which culminates in a lively crescendo highlighted by fresh cherry and strawberry flavors.

From Josh Phelps, this new Oregon extension of his Grounded Wine Company portfolio brings ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit, grounded (dare I say) in a pleasing earthy quality. Some 20% was whole-cluster fermented, which adds texture and some green-tea flavors to the tannins, without becoming too herbal. Off to a good start!

This is the first Oregon Pinot Noir from Grounded Wine Co. This comes from four organically farmed vineyards and was made using 20% whole cluster, without new oak. Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Pinot Noir Landform opens with fresh aromas of gravel dust and crunchy red fruits-fresh strawberries, Bing cherries, pomegranate and crushed raspberries-with accents of orange peel, peppercorn and tobacco leaves. The palate is light to medium-bodied, bright, fresh and delightfully crunchy-very Beaujolais-esque-with a pleasant frame of chalky tannins and juicy freshness on the long, berry-laced finish. This is dangerously easy to drink and well crafted. Winemaker Josh Phelps says, "There aren't a lot of wines at this price point, especially wines made without additives."
