(2012 Vintage) A well-balanced Pinot Noir that offers classic Willamette Valley aromas and flavors – pronounced notes of black cherry, dark tea and baking spices. The broad, open-knit palate features supple tannins and balanced acidity.
Big Sour cherries and a hint of vanilla on the nose. Surprising, subtle woody start that explodes first in to fruit, cherries and raspberries, then in to earthy, smoky bliss, with a solid tannin backbone. Finish is somewhat quick and clean.
