The 2002 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has a fruit-forward nose with aromas of wild berries, black cherry and strawberry. On the palate, a silky texture and rich flavors of black cherry and currant are nicely integrated with spicy oak leading to a soft, lingering finish. Drink now or cellar through 2010.
The 2002 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir comes primarily from three of our Vineyard Designate sites: Hawks View Vineyard (38%), Doe Ridge Vineyard (33%) and Yamhill Springs (19%). Each site is intensely farmed with low yields and represents a unique flavor profile. Hawks View is highly structured with a good acid profile, Doe Ridge is earthy with a unique forest floor character and Yamhill Springs adds richness and the essence of black fruit.
