Ransom Jigsaw Pinot Noir Oregon USA 2012 All of the pieces of the Willamette Valley puzzle fit seamlessly together in the 2012 Jigsaw. An opulent garnet color in the glass, the wine opens with rich aromatics of black plum and violets. The palate is warm and expansive, with flavors of sarsaparilla and sweet earth punctuating plush, velveteen tannins. The wine finishes lavish and supple with lingering hints of muscovado sugar and blackberry conserve. Ready to drink now, with elegance and restraint enough to cellar. The Wine Advocate: 88 points Sourced from a half-dozen vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills and wider Willamette A.V.A.s - including Cattrall and Temperance Hill, from which Seestedt also essayed vineyard designates in this vintage - the Ransom 2012 Pinot Noir Jigsaw was bottled already last July. Its mint- and sassafras-tinged boysenberry, blackberry and cassis fruit preserve an attractively fresh edge and finish with abundant juiciness. This doesn't offer the complexity of the corresponding 2010 (reviewed in issue 202) but offers fine value for consumption by 2015. Pinotage complements grilled and smoked foods, red meat or game, and earthy ingredients such as grilled portabellas or wild mushrooms.
