Medium ruby color with aromas of dark berries, cherry cola, vanilla, and baking spices. Impressive depth and power are evident on the palate in this good vintage featuring dark cherry and raspberry flavors leading to a long finish with velvety tannins. This is their top cuvée made as a rigorous barrel selection from their fruit in Eola-Amity Hills and Yamhill-Carlton with 18% whole cluster use then aged 16 months in 50% new French oak. 13.9% ABV. $60.

Nice texture but a little on the "full" side. Interesting producer though.

It was a lovely gift from my closing attorney. Love drinking PNoir I didn't pay for!

Dark cherry and raspberries, touch of pepper, little thyme. Smooth as silk. Opening up beautifully. Tastes like Oregon. I love this.
