2017 Olson Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir
Our estate vineyard, planted in 1972 brings us wines of complexity and elegance and the 2017 vintage is no different. Winemaker Jacques Tardy blended Dijon, Pommard, and Wadenvil clones from the vineyard and aged the wine for 22 months in 5% new French oak. This complex wine emerges with aromas of violet, cherries and blueberry. Bright on the palate, flavors are sweet with concentrated dark berry notes and rich chocolate, leading to a long and elegant finish of earthiness and a light touch of oak.
The wine is ready to drink now, but will be worth the wait with 6 or more years of cellaring.
