A to Z Essence Pinot Noir 2015
On the attack, the wine shows off the intensity and purity of the 2015 Oregon vintage with intense flavors of red, blue and black fruits. The mid-palate is impeccably balanced with succulent acidity matching firm tannins and beautifully ripe fruit flavors. The wine builds towards a very long finish with lingering flavors of lifted cherry, dusty earth, smoke and hints of iron, 5-spice and vanilla. Drink now through 2025.

While the Willamette Valley and Pinot Noir are a like a fairy tale match made in heaven, most of Oregon is in fact, a glorious source of Pinot noir. Claiming over half of its total area under vine, Pinot noir also thrives in Southern Oregon’s Umpqua and Rogue Valleys where sedimentary and volcanic soils dominate hillside vineyards and cool temperatures create the perfect environment for Pinot noir. Also, Oregon’s Columbia Gorge is becoming increasingly popular for Pinot noir production. What sets Oregon Pinot noir apart from the Pinot of other regions, both New and Old World, is its innate combination of grace with both power and restraint.
