If you love Pinot Noir, then Cooper Mountain Winery should be on your radar.
First of all they are located in Oregon, which to my taste, is producing some of the best Pinot Noir stateside.
Cooper Mountain Winery has certified organic vineyards ( no chemical pesticides or herbicides) and is also Demeter certified biodynamic.
The owner, Dr. Robert Gross, sounds like a pretty groovy guy too. He is a psychiatrist, an acupuncturist and a winery owner. Talk about mastering the healing arts!
The winemaker is Gilles de Domingo from Bordeaux. He joined the team because he believed in the land and the biodynamic principles that Cooper Mountain follows.
The Cooper Mountain Pinot Noir 2007 Reserve is an excellent, change all your preconceptions about domestic Pinot Noir, wine drinking experience.
Delicious cherry aromas with a bit of smoke and earth. Nice touch of mushroom. Gorgeous ruby color. Buy it online for $25 and up.
