Klee Pinot Noir
This Pinot Noir represents 14 family-owned vineyards located in the North Willamette Valley, with about 40% located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and coming mostly from sedimentary and alluvial soil. It is fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in French oak barrels (10% new oak) for 10 months. It is meant to be fruit forward. Heady aromas of cedar, mushroom, earth and black cherry emerge from the glass. On the palate, the fruit-driven wine shows soft tannins and flavors of dark cherry compote, strawberry leather, stewed plums and rose oil. The finish lingers with bright acid to complete the experience.
