Winemaker's Notes:

Indulgent aromas of ripe boysenberry and black cherry are an irresistible invitation to sink into this plush Pinot. A mouthful of mocha, praline and graham take you on a hedonistic journey that ebbs and flows without losing momentum. A beautiful mouthfeel and a gloriously long finish crown this 'princely' vintage.

About Erath Vineyards:

As one of Oregon's wine pioneers, Erath winery's founder, Dick Erath, was driven by the belief that the future of Pinot Noir was in Oregon. Today, Erath's wines are an expression of the land that the winery has cultivated for more than 40 years, longer than any other winery in the Dundee Hill of Oregon. Winemaker, Gary Horner, who shares Dick Erath's background in science and a reverence for Oregon's unique terroir, strives to reveal classic Oregon Pinot: light, delicate and fruit-forward. Horner takes pride in making a range of Pinot Noir styles, from the hugely-popular Oregon blend to the highly-acclaimed, limited-edition, single-vineyard selections. His goal is to make the best Pinot Noir the region has to offer - it is time-honored, authentic and uniquely Oregon.
