Earthy and elegant, fruit forward with smooth, expressive tannins, this wine bears all the hallmarks of a great New World Burgundy. Reminiscent of wild mushrooms and blackberries, luscious damson and warm red roses, the 2007 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is vibrant and delicious in its youth yet has the soft, focused tannins to suggest ageing with grace. Over 10 months in French oak has contributed a velvet softness to the mouthfeel without masking the lovely red to black fruit characteristics. The color is a deep, bright ruby with purple rays and the aromas are quintessential Oregon Pinot Noir. - Winery ** Only 4 in Stock **

Aromas of cherry, pomegranate and strawberry, mingle with violets. A dusting of mocha and hints of vanilla can be found. The palate shows spice with black pepper and some black currant notes. Silky tannins lead to a nice finish for this well balanced wine.The Dundee Hills Reserve Pinot Noir is the result of ongoing observation in the vineyard to select the best fruit from specific rows and blocks. The Black Family Estate Vineyard boasts jory soil which is well known for its iron-rich, fertile qualities.The grapes were hand picked at peak ripeness. The clusters were then hand sorted and fermentation took place over 13 days with alternating Pump Overs and Punch Downs. Barrel aged for 14 months, the wine was then cellared for a further 10 months. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
