Bright youthful garnet color of medium intensity. Sweet ripe cherry and red plum aromas with a hint of minerality and spicy pipe tobacco. Aromas are medium and intense. Aromas repeat as flavors, with a spicy lingering finish.
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir 100%
Hand selected lots from cooler Willamette Valley sites were cold-fermented in open-top vats using hand punch downs and aged for 10-12 months in a combination of French and American oak. Hold for up to 3-5 years or drink now.
