Beaux Frères Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Belles Soeurs 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

Made from declassified grapes from the Beaux Frères Vineyard, this wine has a dense ruby/purple color. The nose reveals a touch of volatile acidity along with sour red and black fruits, earth, and a hint of shoe polish. More root beer and cola notes emerge on the palate, which is high in acidity, but structured as well as dense. This vintage has always seemed to produce wines that are disjointed and clumsy, but vibrant because of their acid levels. It reveals no signs of deterioration, and should last for another 6-8 years.
