Winemaker's Notes

The color is dark, clean and appealing. The nose is bright, with a touch of sweetness, followed by aromas of blackberries, cherries, vanilla and nuances of earth and oak from the barrels. The mouth is very complex, opening with the same black fruits that were expressed in the nose followed by layers of red fruit, caramel, and hints of roasted coffee and spices. The tannins are round, but very present and will integrate gracefully with a bit of time. The finish is moderately long and well balanced. The wine can be paired with heartier fish such as grilled tuna, as well as poultry, red meat and vegetable dishes.

WillaKenzie Estate is located in Oregon's Willamette Valley on rolling hillsides in the Chehalem Mountains.

The vineyards are planted with grapes of the Pinot family, mostly new Dijon clones of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from Alsace. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are cool climate grapes, which are particularly well adapted to Oregon.
