This Yamhill-Carlton AVA blend is a beautiful marriage of two standout vineyards, Lenn? and Merriman. Always a favorite to our fans, ?The Kilmore? Pinot Noir of 2012 exudes aromas of spiced cranberry, cola and black cherry. The palate is bright and opulent with flavors of dark chocolate, tobacco and coffee. The mid-palate is nicely structured with subtle, yet luscious tannins and leads to a smooth and lasting finish.
Sourced from several vineyards within the AVA, this shows lightly peppery Bing cherries with streaks of sassafras, cola and dark chocolate. The wine gains amplitude and weight as it breathes open. The finish brings flavors of cherry pie and a hint of butter.
