2013 Selection Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley, Oregon
Conventionally / Organically farmed
Bottled: August 2015
A barrel selection from four exceptional vineyards in the Eola Hills, the 2013 Selection Pinot Noir is an elegant expression of its vineyard sites and the vintage. A fine garnet color in the glass, the wine opens with vibrant aromas of fresh black cherries, forest floor, and baking spices. A savory note of blackcurrant and driftwood smoke on the palate is punctuated by a bright midline of terroir-driven acidity and filled in by classically fine tannins. The finish is long and resonant, with notes of cranberry and salted caramel. Exceptional now, we believe it will continue to evolve for at least a decade.
