(From 2012 Vintage) An expansive array of fragrances arise from the glass of this aromatically complex Pinot Noir. This bottling beautifully expresses the superior quality of the Willamette Valley’s stellar 2012 vintage. A mixture of blackberries, star anise, cinnamon stick and rose petals on the nose suggest a wine that’s ripe, lush and layered. Upon entry, the palate supports this impression with plush, dark fruit flavors and a fine, silky dusting of milk chocolate. The wine finishes elegantly with a real sense of opulence and finesse.

Wine Spectator(From 2010 Vintage) Fruit, flowers, spice, mineral and earth; this wine exhibits all of these elements both aromatically and in the form of flavor. Red fruits are abundant on the nose - currants and marionberry, cherry and pomegranate, which turn towards raspberry
