*3R* 2016 Brooks "Runaway Red" Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley, OR)
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Region: Willamette Valley, Oregon
Jimi Brooks was an up-and-coming winemaker when he died in his late 30s. His family and friends took up the reins of his new winery, and have kept it in production for the last 20 years. His son is now the owner of Brooks, and continues to oversee the production of wines made in the minimalistic, biodynamic style that his father loved. This new-to-UG Pinot Noir is a winner and has been selling like crazy. The palate has pomegranate, baking spices, dates, and great acidity.
