Sipping Fine Wine

Started by Dr. Madaiah Revana who met Lynn Penner-Ash in the spring 2005, ending his search in Willamette Valley, and naming the winery after his daughter. Aromas of berry fruits and sweet spice. On the palate blackberry and strawberry with cedar, cacao and black pepper. Fine tannins, nice mouthfeel, lingering ending with oak notes.

So, having terroir in the name might be misleading, as the oak treatment is what takes center stage. Caramel, black cherry, cocoa powder, and underbrush are presented in both a juicy and structured style. Atypical of Oregon, but delicious nonetheless.

Blackberry, spice, black licorice, smoke and mineral. Medium bodied with nice structure and balance.

Good nose - full bodied Pinot - smooth and silky that lingers in the back of your tongue. Move-in celebration dinner 😃

Fruit is up front and falls off the back. Would have excepted more from this vintage. Going back and fort on this one. Need to try again.
