2016 Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley

2016 Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley

35.00

Depth of fruit. Cherry Fruit Roll-Ups, wild plums, and boysenberries, are accented by allspice, verbena blooms, tree bark, earth, and a touch of sweet cigar tobacco. On the palate this wine is stylish and velvety, with perfect acidity and a squeeze of fine tannin that dances gracefully amid the fruit. The finish lingers and seduces.

Delicious with:  goat cheese, grilled wild salmon, and steak
