Beaux Frères Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Belles Soeurs 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

The color is a deep, murky ruby/purple (more saturated than any previous Belles Soeurs). Aromatically, this wine is similar to the 1999, with foresty floor aromas intermixed with sweet and sour dense black cherries. Firmly structured, muscular, and dense, this concentrated Shea is just beginning to shed its tannin and reach its plateau of maturity, where it should remain for 7-8 years. Impressive in a large-scaled Côtes de Beaune-like style. Very long.
