2016 Reserve Pinot Noir
Willamette valley, ORegon
Aromatics of wild dark fruits, particularly native Northwest Salal berries and wild blackberries, blend with notes of fresh tobacco leaf and a touch of savory oak. Equally dark on the palate, with round, velvety tannins complemented by the vineyard’s signature natural acidity. This is a Pinot Noir with structure and balance to stand out among all peers. The Reserve Pinot Noir is a blend of our top three vineyard sources within the Willamette Valley, the largest percentage sourced from our namesake Battle Creek Vineyard. This wine received extended aging as a winemaker’s selection of the most complementary lots, showcasing the unique character of Battle Creek Vineyard.
