2013 Dominio IV “Love Lies Bleeding” Pinot Noir Dundee Hills, Willamette Valley

Just off downtown in McMinnville, Oregon are a few blocks that have taken on the name “The Wine Ghetto.” Here wine lovers find Oregon’s brilliant up and comers just a few doors down from premier wineries like Eyrie & Ponzi.

You’ll notice that a lot of the Dominio wines have a common theme; they’re named after classic tunes. The “Love Lies Bleeding” Pinot Noir pays homage to the classic Elton John song while the “Sketches of Spain” Tempranillo is smooth like the eponymous Miles Davis Album.

There are many terms that come to mind when comparing the Dominio IV wines with a great tune like one from Miles Davis, but Harmony, Elegance, Innovative are just a few that stand out. With warm weather here, you’re going to want to get your hands on a light and airy beauty like this Pinot Noir.
