Special Announcements:

  1. Orpheus Wines asks that you support The Stephen Hollenberg Memorial Fund at the Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute at Memorial University Medical Center with your purchase. This charity was founded by Toby W. Hollenberg and her family in memory of Stephen D. Hollenberg.
  2. This Angel Favorite graces our offer page again because we thought it was that spectacular. Such a perfect balance of fruit, acid and earth. Orpheus is almost sold out of this near perfect Pinot Noir, so this is your last chance to add a few bottles to your wine collection.
Tasting Notes:

Marc Krafft believes in minimal winemaker influence. With a humble focus on preserving nature's work of art, an amazing wine emerges. 

Aromas of strawberry and bright cherry start out on this wine, followed by hints of vanilla, cassis, and a brooding earthiness underneath it all.  The front palate is more strawberry, with subtle hints of cola and a touch of warm spice.  The mid-palate is long and delicately balanced between really soft tannins and a nice finishing acidity.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
This is a delightfully fruit forward wine which pairs well with a wide range of dishes. Try it with smoked duck, rosemary encrusted lamb or strawberry shortcake. Also, pair with spicier styles like Mexican cuisine and Thai food. Soft cheeses mingle nicely with this easy drinking Pinot Noir.
About the Winery
Orpheus Wines Life's journey is sometimes circuitous, and for Orpheus Wines' owner and winemaker, that path started in Seattle while finalizing degrees in medical technology, biology and dance. Unsure how to move into the professional phase of his life, Marc Krafft took a long backpacking trip through Europe hoping for inspiration. Inspiration found him on a high speed train in France where he met an enthusiastic winemaker from Bordeaux Learn more
