Cherry, raspberry, cranberry, current, oak, vanilla, smoke and hints of tobacco. Great structure and well-integrated tannins.

Love this. I always have trouble with Oregon Pinot Noir because of the dramatic acidity. Here I am able to perceive a lot more flavor. Smoke, oak, fruit.

WillaKenzie Estate is located in Oregon's Willamette Valley in the Chehalem Mountains. The winery was named after the Willakenzie soil on which the vineyards are planted to convey the influence that the soil imparts on the wine's flavors and aromas. Ruby red with aromas of red fruits and floral notes. On the palate raspberry and cherry with subtle spice. Well balanced with good acidity on lingering finish with a spicy ending.

A bit funky on the nose when you first open it. But if you give it time to breath it becomes a very good wine. I wish I had more.
