TASTING NOTES |
Textbook Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with juicy, fresh fruit and berry flavors - think dark cherry, blackberry, more cherry. Black tea, anise, clove, mocha and vanilla accents abound adding complexity. The texture is ripe and plush with a line of acid running through to keep the wine vibrant. The wine is all about focus, electricity, and verve.
