Rain Dance Nicholas Vineyard Pinot Noir Chehalem Mountains 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2015 Nicholas Vineyard Pinot Noir is powerful with a concentrated core that is driven by berry and spice notes. There is an abundance of dark fruit aromas such as black raspberry, boysenberry and dark cherry, which are underlined by spice, toasted oak and earthy notes. On the pallet this wine is distinctive with structured tannins, ripe fruit and forest floor flavors. Full bodied with great weight and complexity, this Pinot Noir will drink best now through 2025.

Richly concentrated dark berry aromas with subtle fresh herb and brooding spice on the nose. Bright red cherry and red currant palate of tart fruit and pleasant baking spice, on the mid palate there's a cooked red fruit pie filling character and a bit of medicine on the finish.

Surprisingly dark and rich notes of savory earth, black cherry and oak. On the palate this is powerful and bold with black currant and black cherry fruit, concentrated and thick with licorice and a touch of herb, chewy tannins and a bold and oak spiced finish. Decidedly rich and decadent with good depth and heft. A winter red wine drinker’s Pinot.
