96 points, Best 2016 Oregon Pinot: PinotFile

We've followed and respected the PinotFile newsletter for many years; the Prince of Pinot tastes a ton of domestic Pinot noir, knows his stuff, and writes excellent notes.

So when he gave 
Alloro's Riservata Pinot noir 2016 96 points and wrote "Dollar for dollar, the best Oregon Pinot noir I have tasted from the stellar 2016 vintage", we immediately set about getting a bottle to taste. And with glass in hand, I am happy to confirm that it is absolutely fantastic.

96 points PinotFile: "A step up in seduction, with hi-tone aromas of cherry and savory oak. Quite elegant but flavor packed, offering cherry and Marionberry fruit flavors with a gregarious spice compliment that wakes up every taste bud. Sleek and seamless, while underscored with an ever-so-subtle savory component. Very fine tannins coat the teeth with grace and the barrel treatment is dazzling. Even better when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle when the wine was just about perfect in every way. Dollar for dollar, the best Oregon Pinot Noir I have tasted from the stellar 2016 vintage.
 
Arrives May 13 and with this type of review, we highly recommend you jump on it while you can.
