Full disclosure, I am not a fan of “if the food is made here pair the wine from here.” But in this case, it is pure magic! Salmon’s natural denseness and rich flavors blend seamlessly into Pinot Noir’s strawberry, cherry, herbs, mushroom, cinnamon, clove, and tobacco-cigar box, all which leads to a subtle finish. Add to the experience by cooking the salmon on a cedar plank!
Chinook or King
Rich and lush with a high degree of melt in your mouth character.
For many, the best balance of richness and pure flavor. Naturally darker in color.
Mild but unique flavor. Sportsfisherman loves this one.
A good starter salmon for those not use to big flavors of some species. Pink salmon look and taste towards the flaky fish varieties like cod and halibut.
Prized more for its row which shows up in sushi rolls. It is a leaner cut mainly because it is an inter-tidal fish not required to swim upstream..

2016 Beaux Freres Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
92 points Robert Parker
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is scented of warm black cherries and notions of blueberry preserves with touches of clove and nutmeg plus dried leaves, blood orange peel and dusty earth. Light to medium-bodied, it has beautiful purity of warm black cherries and black berries in the mouth with spicy accents, a frame of very fine-grained tannins and wonderful juicy acidity, finishing very long and very spicy. 2,500 cases produced.
