This Pinot Noir is a blend of LIVE Certified Sustainable fruit from Ponzi's Aurora, Madrona and Avellana Vineyards along with Linda Vista, Gran Moraine, Gemini, Zena West and Alloro Vineyards.
Ripe plum, roses, almond extract, clove and anise stand out in this inviting and ever-changing nose. The full mouth of sweet black cherries balanced with high notes of blueberry and pomegranate finishes with soft and silky tannins.
"The 2008 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley was sourced mainly from the Chehalem Mountain AVA. Darker in color, aromatically it leans toward the black fruit side of the spectrum with aromas of incense, violets, black cherry, and black raspberry. A bit more structured on the palate with a good layering of savory black fruits, this precision effort can be enjoyed now and over the next 8 years.
