2017 Quinta Reserva Port Style Pinot Noir

2017 Quinta Reserva Port Style Pinot Noir

This special wine was developed years ago by the late winemaker, Forrest Klaffke. Founder Jim Bernau loved to end his winery tours with a tasting of this wine from the barrel, but Forrest complained that he was giving away too much of this precious, limited-production wine. In an attempt to deter Jim, Forrest locked the Pinot Noir Port barrels away and wore the key around his neck. The day before his passing, he gave the key to Jim. Since then, we have continued to make this wine according to Forrest's methods and bottle it with original vintage label design.  

On the Nose: A wine as equally rich in history, opens with inviting notes of caramel, toffee, five-spice, sultana and chocolate covered cherries.

On the Palate: On the palate, the balance of sweetness and acidity creates a beautifully harmonious and viscous sip with flavors of amaretto, dark fruit, cocoa and holiday spice all concluding with a velvety, long finish.

Food Pairings: Enjoy with dark chocolate with sea salt, savory cheeses like Rogue Creamery blue cheese and baked brie, toffee and brittles or as an after dinner drink close to a crackling fire.

Peak Drinkability: 2020-2030.
