This is a classic Oregon Pinot Noir. Dark garnet in color, the fragrant bouquet is filled with aromas of spices, fresh black raspberries and hints of toasty oak. On the palate, it is racy and firm with flavors laced with cranberries and bittersweet black cherries highlighted with touches of fresh sage and cinnamon. The finish is lively and long with a clean freshness that invites the next sip. Drink the Cuvee A Pinot Noir young to preserve its lively freshness.
"Medium ruby color; bright spicy cherry and raspberry aromas; ripe, raspberry and cherry flavors with some zesty acidity; good structure and balance; long finish. Bright and spicy Pinot that's very pleasant to drink and great for a lighter dish."
"Fragrant, with pretty raspberry and strawberry aromas and flavors on a fragile frame, lingering gently. Drink now through 2014. 3,200 cases made."
