2018 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Willamette Valley, Oregon

The Region

Oregon’s largest AVA, the valley follows the Willamette River, and is bordered by mountains to the east and west. The cool maritime climate can be unpredictable, keeping growers on their toes, while a wide diversity of soils provides a broad palette of expression for Pinot Noir.

Exemplary of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, with concentrated blackcurrant aromas leading to an expressive palate rich in plum flavors with hints of baking spice and cocoa.
