As the author of the Nittany Epicurean blog, wine reviewer and New York-based Michael Chelus, is a prolific sampler of wines and has been since establishing his website in 2013. Chelus features a different wine daily with the exception of Sundays, when he instead shares some of his favorite stories from the worlds of food, wine, beer, cocktails and spirits.
Chelus has been working on a series of Oregon wine reviews (including his recent write-up about our 2018 Prelude Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir). To this series, he recently added his thoughts on our 2016 Titan Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, (his photo is pictured above) writing:
“The wine showed a light ruby color. Raspberry, cherry, cranberry, currant and oak all arrived on the nose. Cherry, raspberry, cranberry, currant and oak followed on a palate teeming with bright red berries. The wine exhibited good structure and length, along with moderate tannins. This wine would pair very well with spicy venison sausage grilled over charcoal.”
The 2016 Titan has proved exceptionally popular this year, and we’re actually selling it quite a bit faster than just about all of our other wines right now. So if you want to add a few bottles to your collection, let us know. Call or email us today and we’ll set some aside for you.
