2017 Kalita Vineyard Pinot Noir
ALC 13.2% Cases Produced: 50
Deep, dark red color. Gorgeous aromas of Bing cherries, cranberries and lilacs. The palate is filled with juicy, crunchy ripe cherry flavors and the mouthfeel is long and well rounded, finishing with a touch of mocha.
The ancient marine sedimentary soils of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA are some of the oldest in the Willamette Valley. Originally the final destination for the early Oregon Trail pioneers, the district is fast becoming one of the best known Pinot Noir producing areas. The well-drained soils prevent excessive vine growth and result in mouth-filling wines with broad, silky tannins.
