2015 Battle Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir 1.5L, Willamette Valley, Oregon


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.
