This is a rich, well-structured Pinot Noir from Oregon's Eola-Amity Hills AVA. A delectable core of wild strawberry with just enough restraint, is enhanced by undertones of earth, spice, mineral that will take you straight to Burgundy. A hint of well-integrated sweet oak rounds out this multi-layered, balanced, beauty of a Pinot that melds power and finesse in a graceful manner. Hat's off to winemakers Kate Norris and Thomas Monroe on this one. Aged for 10 months in French Burgundy barrels and puncheons. 161 cases produced.
