Beaux Freres Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2012
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
The Willamette Valley cuvée features fruit grown on select vineyard sites in the Northern Willamette Valley. The sites are farmed sustainably and managed to very low yields. Aging takes place in the same French oak barrels used in their estate bottling, however the percentage of new oak is intentionally lower. This wine is not fined or filtered. This wine consists of fruit from the following vineyards: Gran Moraine and Shea, from the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, and the Zena Crown Vineyard located in the Eola-Amity AVA.
International Wine Cellar Highly perfumed aromas of blackberry and candied cherry are complemented by suggestions of lavender and licorice. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering weighty dark berry and ripe cherry flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. Expands and deepens on the finish, which features supple tannins and suave floral pastille qualities.
