#73 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008
Thanks to our cool climate on the Western side of the Willamette valley, this Pinot Noir has a bracing backbone of acid. Note the low alcohol. We enjoy balanced alcohol and acid due to the coolness of our vineyard site. This ruby red Pinot Noir has an elegant nose of black cherry, ripe raspberry and a little blueberry/currant. There is a note of cloves and cardoman from the Dijon clones. The mouth has bright raspberry and cherry flavors showing good acid and viscosity. The finish has a bit of spice which fades into raspberry.
