2015 Amelia Rose Cuvée Pinot Noir
True to its namesake, Joe’s daughter Amelia Rose, this Rogue Valley Pinot Noir is youthfully vibrant and complex. Aromas of pie cherry, strawberry, and rhubarb provide an assertive fruit baseline countered with floral and herbal notes wrapped in cocoa and cedar with a hint of smoke. The palate is juicy with medium-full body and flavors similar to and equally complex as the aroma. Ripe red and blue fruits are dressed in toasted and spicy oak from 55% new barrel aging. Twenty months in barrel has helped refine tannins leaving a full and smooth medium-long finish.
