2019 Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
A classic Oregon Pinot Noir. This cuvée is a combination of both estate-grown fruit and thoughtfully selected vineyard blocks from partner vineyards. An intentional range of soils, aspects, and clones of Pinot Noir contribute to a balance that only an artful combination of sites can create. This wine leads with bright marionberry, anise, and cocoa. The palate continues with cane berry and cherry flavors and has a spicy, well-structured finish.
