Taste the Willamette Valley in this beautiful cuvée of Pinot noir. In French, cuvée simply means blend and to us, it is our opportunity to blend barrels of Pinot noir from across the vintage with the goal of crafting a wine that is not only representative of the Willamette Valley and vintage, but is also delicious and approachable. Our cuvées are a blend of several sub-appellation sites and different clones of Pinot, intended to perfectly showcase the delicate dance that fruit, spice, tannin and acids do when Pinot Noir is at its best.
The older sibling to our 2015 Pinot Noir Cuvee, this 2016 Willamette Valley wine encapsulates the spirit of a classic Oregon Pinot Noir. It evokes a sense of nostalgia with playful notes of cherry cola, and expresses an intriguing complexity with whispers of umami and mushroom. Delicious to sip on its own, this 2016 cuvee has more depth and complexity than our 2015, with smooth, balanced tannins. With notes of dried fruit and a woodsy finish, this Pinot Noir would be an ideal partner to a dinner, and its lingering finish will enhance any evening.
