Omen

Pinot Noir, 2016

A little secret: Most top-tier wineries outsource their vineyard management, and the team in the field often understands the vines’ potential even better than the wineries do. That’s why Atlas, one of the most in-demand vineyard-management firms, knew it could make a Pinot as good as their clients’ high-priced, high-scoring wines. Led by Atlas winemaker Alexandre Remy, Omen Pinot Noir was created to prove that great wines come from people who work closest with the vines.

Profile

Omen Pinot Noir has a style between what you think of as Oregonian (light and complex) and Californian (bold and fruity). This is the Pinot everyone can agree on.

Pairing

Classic in style, these reds are equal parts power and finesse. Richer Pinots and Merlot-based Bordeaux reds, with their mix of red- and black-fruit flavors, can hold their own with just about any meat. The most delightful pairing to remember: Pork always loves this kind of Pinot Noir.

More About The Wine

The Rogue Valley is a small region in Oregon’s southwest corner, near the border with California. It has several different microclimates within each of three valleys, so many red and white varieties grow well here. Rogue Valley is generally warmer than Oregon’s Willamette Valley, so the Pinot grapes develop more concentrated flavors.

DID YOU KNOW?

Phenolics are aroma and flavor compounds that develop naturally in wine grapes. Similar compounds are also found in chocolate.
