Tasting Notes

2014 will be compared to the enormously successful 2012 vintage. The season was long with even, warm weather and allowed winegrowers to elect when to pick – which is a rare privilege in the Willamette Valley. This 2014 Pinot Noir is immediately engaging with a nose of plums, spice, black cherries, and earth. The wine is ripe and rich, but with good underlying acidity. Brambly, darkly fruited and very showy as a young wine, it has medium body and finishes strong, not to excess, with balanced tannins.
