Lenne Estate Yamhill-Carlton District Pinot Noir 2008

Member Review by BTKerne:

A top class wine from the relatively new Yamhill-Carlton District of Willamette Valley. 30mins after opening, this wine shows dense smoky wet earth on the nose with hints of wild cherries. Great aromatics. I keep going back to the nose, but the fruit is not showing much. On the palate it is a denser Pinot Noir, which doesn't say much considering my level of experience with these wines. A broad spectrum of red and dark fruit. Great wild cherry flavors with a dark loamy earth foundation. Consistent tar and mocha flavors through the finish. Balanced acidity with great structure. This wine could still use some time but is showing greatly now.

Welcome to Lenné online. We are producers of hand crafted, estate grown Oregon Pinot Noir. This Oregon Pinot Noir comes from our small 20.9 acre vineyard near the town of Yamhill, Oregon, in the Yamhill-Carlton District. Our winemaking style is minimalist, taking advantage of the profound flavors produced by this unique Pinot Noir vineyard. Our first two Pinot Noirs were released under the LeNez label and are sold out. We have released our fourth Pinot Noir under this label, the 2007 LeNez Pinot Noir which is 100% estate fruit. We have also released the the 2007 Lenné Estate label, the Karen’s Pommard Pinot Noir and just sold out of the Jill’s 115 Pinot Noir under this label. All the wines under the Lenné Estate label represent the best barrels from the vineyard in each vintage. Read less
