James Suckling Review
A gently brambly nose with forest wood and leaves, cast across spiced red-cherrynnotes. The palate has vibrant acidity and a fresh, fleshy and smooth-honed core of silky tannin. Nice resolve and balance here. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
Wine Tasting Notes
An admirable glimpse of the Willamette Valley's finest offerings, our Reserve Pinot Noir is truly a celebration of balance. All three of our vineyards are based in volcanic, red soils, contributing to its red cherry, rose mallow, and grilled meats. The tannins are firm, but rounded, an underlying minerality which drives the mid-palate through the long finish. While delving for pure fruit flavors and juicy acidity, we hang our phenolic hat on our trademark silky texture.
