    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine offers structure, earthy, and fruit characteristics upon which the Oregon wine industry was built and revered. Black cherry, plum, cinnamon, and earthy, forest floor notes are the core of the Cuvee du Tonnelier. This wine lends itself to earlier drinking. Tonnelier is intended as an approachable but reserve-level wine, suitable for cellaring for several years or drinking up after a year of bottle age.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Sleek, vivid and open-textured, this is a wine of tremendous presence, offering currant, plum and floral flavors that float engagingly over refined tannins. The finish doesn't quit.

    Based as usual on his estate’s oldest Pommard vines, Tunnell’s 2011 Pinot Noir Cuvee du Tonnelier is pungently and effusively not to mention winsomely-scented with licorice, wisteria, heliotrope, incense, cassis and elderberry. Juicy, tart-edged dark berry fruit informs a fine-grained palate with the inner-mouth florality and licorice characteristically emphasized by vendange entier persisting all the way through a long, mouthwatering finish in which bittersweet nuttiness and marrowy meat stock add depth and richness.
