BELLE PENTE PINOT NOIR YAMHILL-CARLTON 2015

14 Current Inventory

The 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir includes grapes from 4 vineyards, all located in the elite appellations of Yamhill-Carlton and Dundee Hills.  The Yamhill-Carlton sites account for 2/3 of the blend, with most of the fruit coming from our Belle Pente estate vineyard, supplemented by a small portion from Fox Rock vineyard.  Dundee Hills is represented by Murto and Bella Vida vineyards.

This diversity of sources has created perhaps the most complex and compelling of this bottling to date.  The 2015 vintage was generous in both quantity and quality, elevating the status of this delicious little cuvee well above its humble appellation and modest price.  A somewhat reticent nose reveals hints of red, blue, and black fruits complicated by whiffs of spice box and herb garden.  The medley of fruits carries through to the palate, which is rich and ripe but also focused and balanced.
