2017 Yamhill Carlton Select Pinot Noir
Winkler Vineyard, sitting at an elevation of 600 to 700 feet, in Yamhill Carlton AVA brings us fruit for this stellar Pinot Noir. Using 100% Dijon 115 clones, the wine was aged for 22 months in 26% new French oak barrels. A rich aroma of blue plums and notes of lavender introduce this lovely wine. The juicy flavors of plum and berries are complimented by just a touch of earthy complexity and soft tannins that lead to a complex finish of dark chocolate and spice.
This wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for 5 - 6 years.
