4 In Stock
"This rich and flavorful Pinot Noir was crafted from grapes grown at Lazy River Vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA near the Oregon Coast Range mountains. Winemaker Tony Rynders aged the wine on French oak, 47% new, for 8 months. A favorite with my tasting panel, the wine offers complex aromas and flavors of black fruits and dark cherry with notes of earthy minerality, blueberry and hints of mocha and spice."
Wines Northwest by Chuck Hill "Wines for Thanksgiving" November 2017
"This wine placed first in a flight of premium Pinot Noirs during my springtime Pinot and Salmon tastings. I heartily recommend it for the red wine lovers at your Thanksgiving table for its rich and complex flavor and character. One caveat: aerate the wine by pouring into a decanter for service, it will open up and give you the full measure of its very high quality."
A collection of earthy fruity goodness reflects the predominately Jory soil with highlights of sedimentary soil. Dark fruit explodes in the front palate, followed by minerality, blue fruit and subtle mocha tones. The rich mouthfeel and smoothness is experienced in the lengthy finish.
