Winemaker's Notes

With a ruby-garnet color of exceptional depth and clarity, 2005 Pierre Léon displays complex aromas combining ripe red and black fruits, with a subtle smokiness and hints of rose petal. Blackberry, dark cherry and plum flavors create a round, robust mouthfeel that is nicely framed by distinct and supple tannins, while gentle oak pervades the long finish. This elegant, fullbodied wine will complement many dishes including filet mignon, or flank steak, roasted rack of lamb, and vegetable lasagna. A wine of this scale will improve in the cellar for 3-5 years from the release date and age for 10 or more. We suggest that you open it an hour before serving.

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.
