1985 Adelsheim Pinot Noir
8/11/10-The Knitters were hosted by Carl & Kathy Hennige and enjoyed a well aged pinot noir from the State of Oregon. The wine was produced by David Adelsheim, an early pioneer in the Oregon pinot noir industry. He was his own hands-on winemaker from 1978 to 1985, despite his self-confessed "lack of formal training in wine making". The wine was still youthful and very enjoyable, attesting to the early introduction of quality pinot noir from Oregon.
