Loosen to pair up with Oregon winemaker to make Pinot Noir

I read this morning that Ernst Loosen, the German winemaker famous for his Rieslings, is going to pair up with J. Christopher winery in Oregon's Willamette Valley to make a Pinot Noir.

He already pairs up with Chateau St. Michelle in Washington State to make the phenomenal Eroica dryRiesling, and I have high expectations for his Pinot Noir.

Loosen was Decanter's Man of the Year in 2005.
