A true expression of Oregon Pinot Noir: racy, with bright red fruit and fine tannins in harmony.
The generous vintage delivered rich, dark color to the A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir. Striking aromas of black cherries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries are overlaid with a cornucopia of spices. As the wine opens, aromas expand to include pipe tobacco, fennel, and red currants. The palate initially mirrors the aromatics with complex, pure red and blue fruit flavors. As the wine moves across the palate, ripe, dusty tannins bracketed by juicy acidity give shape and definition to the powerful fruit flavors in harmony with a mineral quality, reminiscent of slate and graphite.
