Winemaker's Notes:

Flavors of ripe black fruits, flowers, cassis and oak all show a depth, elegance, and length that mark a classic Oregon Pinot Noir. Aromas and flavors of blackberries, blueberries, red currants, cinnamon, coffee and smoke emerge and deepen as they open up to include the smell of violets and carnations. All of the components, tannin, acid and fruit are very well balanced and combine to produce a concentrated, rich mid-palate, and long finish. This wine will improve and age gracefully for the next ten years.
