Sourced from a collection of premier sites in the Willamette Valley, this wine is designed to embody the spirit of the region. Showcasing a myriad of Pinot Noir clones, this wine spent almost a year of élevage. The result is an approachable wine that can be enjoyed during its youth. The nose is dark and earthy, with notes of blackberry, bramble, and baking spice. The palate is structured by fine-grain tannins that lift vibrant red fruit flavors through the finish.
Supple and elegantly layered, with pretty raspberry, spiced cinnamon and black tea flavors that flesh out on a long finish. Drink now through 2026. 5,300 cases made.
Vivid ruby-red. Pungent, spice-accented dark berry, cherry and succulent herb scents show good clarity and pick up a hint of cola with air. Gently sweet and plush in style, the 2018 offers black raspberry, cherry-cola and spicecake flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Finishes with repeating spiciness and fine-grained tannins that lend subtle grip to a clinging cherry note.
