Vibrant flavors of dark summer cherry, raspberry, and red plum are complimented by delicate spice notes from the judicious use of French oak. The palate is crisp, lush and clean, with a lingering, mouth-watering finish.

A wine as mysterious and stately as its raven namesake.

Ratings Steven Tanzer: 90 Points
Bright ruby. Smoky raspberry, cherry and floral pastille scents are given depth by notes of vanilla and cola. Silky and open-knit, offering pliant, lucid red fruit flavors that put on weight with air. The smoke and floral qualities repeat on the long, berry-driven finish, which is shaped by gentle, harmonious tannins.

Vineyard Notes
Our 2012 ‘Nevermore’ Pinot Noir is sourced from three vineyards, in three of the Willamette’s sub-AVA’s: Monk’s Gate, (Yamhill-Carlton) Hyland, (McMinnville), and Willakia (Eola-Amity Hills).

Production Notes
After hand-sorting, the fruit is gently de-stemmed, and all wines are vinified and aged individually prior to blending. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak, of which 30 percent is new. A slow, natural malolactic fermentation completed in early spring.
