2016 Vista Hills Vineyard Pinot Noir
Perched atop the storied Dundee Hills, this LIVE certified, sustainable vineyard delivers wines with bright red fruit notes and earthy, spicy complexity.
Red-fruited aromas of ripe, dark cherry and redcurrant juxtapose with earthy, spicy notes of wet leaves, leather, tobacco, black licorice and oaky vanilla. The flavor mirrors the aroma, with subtle spice notes derived from whole cluster fermentation and 30% new oak barrels. Moderate tannins and elegant acid carry a medium long finish. This Dundee Hills single vineyard Pinot pairs easily with a variety of dishes like Cassoulet, roast chicken,and Brie with dried cranberries and fig jam. Enjoy as a vibrant youthful wine from 2019-2021 and watch it mellow with age from 2022-2024.
