A perfumed nose showcases strawberry, anise, and tea spice aromatics. Experience ripe, fresh raspberry, red plums, and strawberry compote with a hint of subtle cedar. The fine texture and silky tannins enhance the vanilla, brown sugar, and leather notes on the finish.
RP90 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley has a pale to medium ruby color and opens with crunchy cranberries, blackberries, pomegranate, dried herbs and dusty earth with touches of bitter peel and bark. The light-bodied, silky palate offers pure, earth-laced, crunchy fruits, finely grained and fresh on the earthy finish. "We picked some grapes early and some later and blended them, in an effort to retain natural acidity without having to acidify," says winemaker Lynn Penner-Ash. 8,659 cases produced.
