2019 Kalita Vineyard Pinot Noir
ALC 13.5% Cases Produced: 100
The nose is rich with blackberry, raspberry, plum, blond tobacco and white pepper aromas. The palate is round and juicy with blue and red fruit flavors that linger with sweet tannins.
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.
