2014 "The Circle" Cuvée Pinot Noir
This wine is a mini-tour of the Willamette Valley stopping at 6 vineyards, highlighted by Vista Hills Vineyard in the Dundee Hills AVA which accounts for 50% of the blend. Diverse aromas of fruit, spice, and earthiness found in dried cherry, cigar paper and Chanterelle mushroom transition seamlessly onto the palate, expanding into medium body, structured tannins and moderate acid. 25% new oak aging leaves a light touch of oak that adds complexity to the grape driven character of the blend. This wine will age gracefully into 2020.
