As always this wine is a true Willamette Valley blend. Some of each of the 8 pinot noir vineyards we work with end up in this wine, making it a true representation of the 2018 vintage and the Willamette valley as a whole. Winemaking has remained the same as past vintages, as well as volume produced. We have always focused on quality verses quantity and we believe we have reached an equilibrium of both. This wine has generous fruit on the nose showing classic black cherry cranberry and a touch of cedar. There is a umami like minerality in the mid palette that is like a frame on which the bright jolly rancher like berry character hangs. The finish is opulent with both fruit and cola with soft tannins that linger on the palette just long enough to make you want another sip.
