    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir is an elegant wine that truly expresses the terroir of the three unique vineyard sites within the Willamette Valley that contribute to this bottling. Aromas of cherry, pie spice, nuts and plum, are complimented by just a hint of brown sugar sweetness on the nose. A sweet entry with flavors of tart red cherry, raspberry, orange peel, black pepper and dark chocolate. A lively, spicy sip with mouthfilling body, lively acid and balanced, round tannins. The finish is long, juicy, and just a little spicy. Appealing now but will further reward those who cellar this wine. Drink now through 2016.

    Pair with prime rib, quail, duck, wild game, and winter vegetables-especially mushrooms. Great paired with dishes with complex spices. Try with a variety of medium to strong cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Slightly rustic and woodsy, this wine has a smoky savor, an earthy top note over grilled cherry scents. The firm, weighty tannins have the structure to reward cellar time; then serve with duck confit.

    An attractive and impressively complex nose of fresh red and dark berry fruit aromas that are cut with spice and briar notes merges into supple, detailed and energetic middle weight flavors that terminate in a mouth coating and well-balanced finish. This relatively forward effort could already be enjoyed though there is excellent upside development potential present.

    Light and fragrant, with some density to the black cherry and fresh orange peel aromas and flavors, weaving in a brewed tea note as the finish persists against refined tannins. Drink now through 2018.
