According to Markam Heid of Food and Wine,
pairing wine with food can be tricky even when a meal is simple.

On a holiday like Thanksgiving—when plates are packed with a cornucopia of mains and sides—selecting an appropriate wine can feel downright befuddling. “Rather than trying to match wines to individual flavors or dishes, go for bottles that complement a wide variety of foods,” says Andrew Milliorn, wine steward at Mattie’s in Austin, Texas.

Pinot Noir—especially fine-boned and delicate Pinots like many of those made in Oregon’s Willamette Valley—is a great choice. “Pinot Noir is a food-friendly wine that often shows classic fall flavors such as cranberry, red apple skin, dried leaves, and allspice,” says Leslie Hartman, sommelier at The French Room in Dallas.

We make it easy to find the perfect wine.

At SUNU we’re smitten with Pinot Noir, especially the SEDUCTIVE, POWERFUL expressions that emerge from the storied slopes of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. We offer a variety of wines, five that are each sourced from distinct vineyards in the region, and one that is an amazing blend. Tasting through the 2018 Vintage is an exploration of how the terroir and subtle microclimates can create wines of sophistication and nuance.

2018 Lonesome Rock

$75.00 / 750ml

Barrel aging took place in 30% new French oak for 16 months. The wine is brooding, floral, and seductive, with dark raspberry, black cherry, and incense swirling alongside new leather and baking spice aromas. The palate is firm, dense, and mouth-filling with ample acidity freshening the mineral dominant finish. Beautiful now, but if you can resist for a few years, you’ll be rewarded.

2018 Shea West Hill

$75.00 / 750ml

The 2018 Shea West Hill had approximately 40% of the fruit fermented in barrels with 20% whole clusters, building both structure and texture, then aged for 16 months in 30% new French oak barrels. Pretty and elegant, it shows bright red cherries, orange peel, and exotic aromas of rose petals and violets. The palate manages richness and elegance, with silky tannins and a long, polished finish. This will continue to unfurl over the next 5-10 years.

$75.00 / 750ml

The 2018 Matteri was fermented between French oak barrels and concrete with 35% whole cluster inclusion then aged for 16 months in 40% new French Oak. Site and clone come together in a firm and powerful wine, full of black fruits, rose petals, exotic spices, leather, dried citrus, and tobacco. The palate is a blockbuster, alternating between bright fruit and concentrated minerality. The wine shows the substantial structure, with the polished tannins indicating serious cellar potential.

2018 Saffron Fields

$75.00 / 750ml

The 2018 Saffron Fields was split between open top vessels and large concrete tanks, helping to integrate the pronounced structural elements of the site, creating a rich and supple mouthfeel. The resulting wine is powerful and robust yet focused and elegant. Intense aromas of black fruit, damson plum, clove, and orange zest jump from the glass, with supporting accents of fresh-tilled earth and cedar. The tannins are supple and fine, sustaining a lengthy finish that is expressive and broad. This is just lovely right now, but will undoubtedly show new dimension with short-term cellaring.

2018 Shea East Hill

$75.00 / 750ml

The 2018 Shea East Hill was fermented entirely in concrete with 15% whole clusters, helping to integrate tannin and provide texture, and then aged for 16 months in 30% new French oak barrels. The darker, brooding sibling of its West Hill brother, its color is indicative of what follows: dense blackberries, forest floor, blood orange, dried flowers, and sandalwood. The palate is dense and tightly-coiled, with ample, refined tannins and a long polished finish.
