Willakenzie P Noir Emery 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark fruits waft with black currants and blueberries, unfolding into a warm, spicy fragrance of cherry brandy, clove, sandalwood, leather, and pipe tobacco. A nice, upfront acidity explodes into a lush, unexpected juiciness, which lingers then melts into a sweet, rich, and succulent mouth feel. Exceptionally balanced, nuances of oak accentuate the dark fruit-forward flavors of black cherry, black currants, and sugarplum, which then stretch out with long, soft tannins into final notes of toffee and vanilla. It will benefit from 3 years in the cellar and age well for 10 to 15 years from its release date.

WillaKenzie Estate:
Willakenzie Estate’s life began in 1991 when founder Bernard Lacroute purchased a cattle ranch. This 420 acre ranch, located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, was named after the Willakenzie soil that breathes life into their vines.

Willakenzie Estate’s life began in 1991 when founder Bernard Lacroute purchased a cattle ranch. This 420 acre ranch, located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, was named after the Willakenzie soil that breathes life into their vines. In 2000, an additional 95 acres of land, this time in the Dundee Hills, was obtained, and it was named the Jory Hills vineyard after the Jory soil type. In total, there are about 105 acres under vine at the original Yamhill location, with another 25 acres at the Jory Hills vineyard. Two thirds of the grapes planted at the original vineyard are Pinot Noir, while the remainder is other Pinot grapes, along with Chardonnay. Willakenzie’s winery was built in 1995, right as their first harvest was coming to a close. Today, about 20,000 cases of wine are produced annually, thanks to the hard work of winemaker Thibaud Mandet. Read less
