Rich ripe fruit. Med acidity, another Willamette winner from the 12 vintage #oregonpinotnoir

Have yet to taste a 12 from WV that I haven't dug. Grapey in youth but perfectly integrated acid. Perfect vintage. The carpet cleaner is equally as awesome when I spill it from over excitement

Plenty of aeration reveals a deft balance of density and silkiness.

Bright nose of cut currants and cranberries, cinnamon, menthol, sage, nutmeg, and subtle notes of white pepper and rose hip, all of which founded in overtones of cherry Dr. Pepper. Ripe black raspberries and black cherries burst on the tongue, mellowing into fresh dark plums, dark chocolate, and anise. Finishes long and clean with dark soils, basalts, and peppery notes.
