Battle Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir | Willamette Valley AVA | The aromatics of this wine are dark, brooding and evolve constantly in the glass from black huckleberry and wild blueberry to orange blossom and camphor; from Concord grape to freshly rolled cigars; ever expanding and developing. The entry is transparent to the nose, ethereal and constantly changing, delivering notes of Chinese 5 spice, boysenberries and fresh, resinous pine. The mid-palate and finish offer the depth and structure of sinewy tannins supported by the natural acid backbone that is characteristic of this vineyard. This wine will continue to develop with bottle aging for at least 10-15 years.
Roe Vineyard Pinot Noir | Ribbon Ridge AVA | The aromatics of this wine are dark and rich with notes of baker's chocolate, black cherries, black plum, candied violets, jasmine and sandalwood. The entry is full and resinous with complex flavors of brambly berries and sweet plum chutney, Chambord and creme de casses. The finish delivers plenty of length and structure with lingering, velvety tannins. This wine will continue to develop with bottle aging for at least 8-10 years.
Yamhela Vineyard Pinot Noir | Yamhill-Carlton AVA | The aromatics of this wine, which are typical of the site and of the specific blocks selected for this blend, are of cherry cola, star anise, dried cherries and baking spices. The entry is round and juicy, yet bright and delicate and delivers flavors of red currants, pomegranate and pie cherries which give way to a finish of jasmine, cedar and structured tannins. This wine will continue to develop with bottle aging for at least 10-15 years.
