Our Reserve Pinot Noir is a barrel selection from the best vineyards on the estate, with an emphasis on strength, depth and elegance. The 2014 growing season brought us a relatively dry summer which resulted in a fuller-bodied wine with fruit-forward characteristics of ripe cherry, blackberry and raspberry character with overtones of earth, mocha and spice. Sunny days and cool nights combined to form a well-rounded Pinot Noir with fresh flavors and healthy acidity. In the realm of Pinot Noir, the 2014 Reserve brings a little more intensity of flavor while still remaining elegant from the native yeast fermentation.

Bright red. Smoke- and spice-accented aromas of black raspberry and cherry pit slowly develop a musky herb nuance. Sappy and precise on the palate, offering sweet red fruit and cola flavors and a hint of musky herbs. Takes a turn to darker berry fruit on the long, gently tannic finish, which features a vanilla nuance that adds appealing, clinging sweetness.  --91

Wow. This reserve is a beautiful representation of Willamette. Layers of favors, nice fruit and a lengthy finish. It won't be my "Tuesday night" wine (price) but will no doubt be my weekend crowd pleaser.
