Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Steve and Paula Black pursued a dream in 2003 and purchased a 110-acre vineyard located in the Red Hills of Dundee creating The Four Graces, named after their four daughters. Ruby with surprisingly complex aromas of red fruits, herb and spice. On the palate cherry and raspberry flavors with tea and espresso notes adding a bit of pepper spice. Well balanced acidity with fine tannins, medium(+) length, ending with earthy notes. Nice value!

Cherry, raspberry, cranberry, maple, rhubarb, licorice and oak. Great structure and well-integrated tannins.

Tonight's wine is The Four Grace's 2014 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.

The nose has fresh red fruits that are very pronounced with notes of strawberry, red raspberry, cranberry, cherry, mint, clove and mushroom.

There are notes of red raspberry, strawberry, cherry, cranberry, white pepper, clove, and an earthy minerality.

This is a light bodied wine with medium + acidity, a fine medium + smooth tannin and a fresh long finish.

A very pleasing wine and an enjoyably quaffable burgundian fare from the Willamette Valley that I have come to love.

Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🖒
