Wine Info
 

THE WINE

Ripe fruit on the nose that develops into aromas of blackberries, cranberries, cola, plum, dried cherries and savory leather. On the palate the wine is lush with flavors of fresh and juicy cherry pie, dark plum, forest floor and a long, silky milk chocolate finish with a note of fresh black pepper.

THE AVA

Framed by the Coast Range mountains to the west and Cascade Mountains to the east, the Willamette Valley AVA forms a cool-climate growing basin ideally suited for the production of traditional Burgundian varieties. With an array of different soil types and microclimates, the quality and complexity of Willamette Valley wine has garnered a fierce international reputation.

ACCOLADES

92 Points – Wine Enthusiast Magazine
(Editors’ Choice) “Pinpoint flavors compel your attention, with a mix of rhubarb, pomegranate and red berry. There’s a sprinkle of oregano and well-managed highlights of coffee and toast from 10 months in one-quarter new French oak. This continues to be one of the finest values in a Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.”
