Willakenzie Pierre Leon Pinot Noir Oregon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes With a ruby-garnet color of exceptional depth and clarity, Pierre Leon displays complex aromas combining ripe red and black fruits, with a subtle smokiness and hints of rose petal. Blackberry, dark cherry and plum flavors create a round, robust mouthfeel that is nicely framed by distinct and supple tannins, while gentle oak pervades the long finish. This elegant, fullbodied wine will complement many dishes including filet mignon, or flank steak, roasted rack of lamb, and vegetable lasagna. A wine of this scale will improve in the cellar for 3-5 years from the release date and age for 10 or more. We suggest that you open it an hour before serving.

WillaKenzie Estate:
Willakenzie Estate’s life began in 1991 when founder Bernard Lacroute purchased a cattle ranch. This 420 acre ranch, located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, was named after the Willakenzie soil that breathes life into their vines.

Willakenzie Estate’s life began in 1991 when founder Bernard Lacroute purchased a cattle ranch. This 420 acre ranch, located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, was named after the Willakenzie soil that breathes life into their vines. In 2000, an additional 95 acres of land, this time in the Dundee Hills, was obtained, and it was named the Jory Hills vineyard after the Jory soil type. In total, there are about 105 acres under vine at the original Yamhill location, with another 25 acres at the Jory Hills vineyard. Two thirds of the grapes planted at the original vineyard are Pinot Noir, while the remainder is other Pinot grapes, along with Chardonnay. Willakenzie’s winery was built in 1995, right as their first harvest was coming to a close. Today, about 20,000 cases of wine are produced annually, thanks to the hard work of winemaker Thibaud Mandet. Read less
