This Pinot Noir is a blend of seven different clones of Pinot Noir grapes grown on our Southern Willamette Valley location. . The relatively warm location allows us to produce very consistent pinot year after year. This is an easy to love pinot noir with vibrant fresh cherry flavors and a silky texture making this a very popular seller. It is a great accompaniment for lighter pasta or salad/meat dishes.

Tart and earthy, this unusual Pinot does not lack for flavor interest. Cranberry fruit, sharp acidity, a streak of cola, a hint of wintergreen and a slight bitterness to the finish keep the palate on its toes (if such is possible).
|Wine maker notes
|While wrapped in a hint of spice, the aromas of this wine are dominated by bright red fruits like rhubarb, strawberry and cranberry. On the palate, it exhibits lithe fruitiness and lingering cherry and berry flavors. The wine is medium bodied with a silky texture and would be very versatile in pairing with many types of food.
