Tasting Notes

Impeccably sourced fruit from 8 diverse Willamette Valley vineyard sites create complexity in our hallmark opulently styled Pinot Noir. Aromas of ripe, red fruit transition to intriguing notes of cocoa, vanilla, caramel, cedar and lilac. The palate opens to a full-bodied entry with a smooth midpalate and a counterpoint of juicy acid. Flavors parallel the aroma along with darker accents of blackberry, spiced plum and tobacco. 60% new French oak and 12% whole cluster fermentation add body and structure along with non-fruit complexity. A vibrant, medium-long finish is carried by balanced acid and youthful tannins. We recommend enjoying this wine from 2020-2027 as its fresh vibrancy transitions to integrated, smooth complexity.
