2012 O'Brien Pinot Noir

2012 O'Brien Pinot Noir

Named one of Seattle Times' 50 best wines of 2015 92 points - Wine Advocate 

Dick and Betty O’Brien began planting Elton Vineyards in 1983. They have dedicated their lives to environmental stewardship and industry leadership. This small bottling is a tribute to their contribution in helping build the Oregon wine industry. Deep garnet in color, the 2012 O'Brien Pinot Noir offers a complex aroma profile with notes of condensed raspberry and blackberry, savory thyme and rosemary herbs and enticing baking spices. Powerful on the palate and packed with flavors of tropical guava fruit, currant, fig, macerated raspberry, cassis, wet earth and dark chocolate. The full-bodied sip is graceful, well-rounded by exceptionally integrated tannins and balancing acidity, and relinquishes a lithe finish so long, it creates a memory. Everything is turned up to a ten in this wine.
