The 2008 Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir is an elegantly aged wine that truly expresses the terroir of the three unique vineyard sites within the Willamette Valley that contribute to this bottling. Aromas of cherry, pie spice, nuts and plum, are complemented by just a hint of brown sugar sweetness on the nose.
The 2008 vintage was marked by a cooler than average growing season producing exceptional Oregon Pinot Noir with very well developed tannic structure balanced with lively acids and bright, black and red fruit flavors.
