2014 single vineyard series Pinot Noir
willamette valley, ORegon
Battle Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir | Willamette Valley AVA | Dark, brooding aromatics are ever expanding and developing, from black huckleberry and wild blueberry to orange blossom and camphor. The entry is ethereal, delivering notes of crème de cassis and fresh, resinous pine. A deep, structured mid-palate of sinewy tannins are supported through the finish by the natural acidic backbone so characteristic of this vineyard.
Roe Vineyard Pinot Noir | Ribbon Ridge AVA | Showcases dark, bold aromatics of baker’s chocolate, boysenberries, jasmine and sandalwood. The entry is full and rich with complex flavors of brambly berries and sweet plum chutney seasoned with star anise, cardamom and exotic spices. The finish delivers elegant length and structure with lingering, velvety tannins.
Yamhela Vineyard Pinot Noir | Yamhill-Carlton AVA | Showcases aromatics typical of the vineyard and specific blocks selected for this blend, including cherry cola, grenadine and cherry cobbler with accents of cinnamon stick and vanilla bean. A round and juicy entry delivers flavors of red currants, pomegranate and pie cherries which give way to a finish of baking spices and silky tannins.
