In The Glass: Cornerstone Oregon Stepping Stone Pinot Noir 2010

photo (19)Once again, Cornerstone Cellars Oregon brand blows me away. The last two wines from Cornerstone that I sampled, a Pinot Noir and a Chardonnay, were perfect examples of how the incredible Willamette Valley terroir combined with skilled winemaking can create wines of distinctive elegance and beauty from first whiff to last drop. The Cornerstone 2010 Stepping Stone Pinot Noir is no exception – it too, was absolutely delicious.

Cornerstone Stepping Stone 2010 Pinot Noir displays vibrant red fruit aromas – cranberries, raspberries and cherries. On the palate, those vibrant aromas are showcased in seamless waves that roll from front to back with an added earthy and white peppery finish. The fruit characteristics are rounded out by smooth, lush tannins. This $60 Pinot comes with a $30 price tag – a rare occurrence, indeed. Snatch some up before it’s all gone, only 137 cases were produced.
