The last time we offered one of Minimus' experimental wines, we said that we'd never tasted a Northwest wine like it. Not to sound like a broken record but, well, it can't be helped.
Faced with a decision at harvest of what to do with Willamette Valley Nebbiolo that needed to be picked, but wasn't at the point where it could stand alone as a structured red wine, winemakers Chad and his assistant Meredith found the perfect method and solution: a nouveau-style Nebbiolo.
Existing in the world between red and pink (though decidedly more red in color), this beautifully aromatic wine smells of roses and cherries. At 11% alcohol, it's wonderfully refreshing; we suggest serving it at 55 degrees or so. Speaking of 55, there were only 55 cases made of this gem, so don't expect it to last long.
