A beautiful introduction to this elegant wine begins with a nose of fresh fruit and bake shop spices. A sip enhances the aromas and produces so much more to enjoy: raspberry, blackberry, cherry pie, vanilla, clove and a little smoke. A long smooth finish brings along mocha and a little spice and reminds you what the next sip will bring.
With its perfect terroir and remarkable winemaking team, this wine truly over-delivers on our expectations.
"Their 2010 Pinot Noir is a nearly perfect wine displaying great structure with bold and generous fruit."

The Willamette Valley, Oregon’s leading wine region, is recognized as one of the premier Pinot Noir producing areas in the world. The Willamette Valley is a huge and varied appellation that includes six sub-appellations: Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge and Yamhill-Carlton. Overall, the climate boasts a long, gentle growing season – warm summers with cool evenings; bursts of Indian summer into fall; mild winters followed by long springs. In ideal years the maritime climate provides the best conditions possible for growing the cool-climate grape variety for which Oregon is best known: Pinot Noir. The area is also known for producing Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Melon, Gewürztraminer, sparkling wine, Sauvignon Blanc and some Syrah, Cabernet, and Merlot among other lesser-known varieties.
