Beautiful Pinot Noir made by Todd Alexander from Force Majeure in Washington State and Bryant Family Vineyard in Napa. This bottling comes from the Yamhill-Carlton AVA in Oregon and only 250 cases produced.

Mix of garnet and ruby red. Layered nose with notes of leather, forest floor, baking spices, perfumes blackberries, and a touch sweet smoky. Medium tannins and acidity (6/10) and medium bodied. Quite powerful and voluptuous for a Pinot Noir. Lots of purple flowers on the palate with some blue berries, twigs, dark spices, anise, gravel and some red berries, like currants and black cherries. Long and lingering finish. Drink will 2023.

Sample provided by winemaker, retail price is $49.00.
