2011 Coleman Vineyard Pinot Noir
The Coleman vineyard is close to the Van Duzer corridor, an opening through the Coast Range mountains to the Oregon coast, providing hot summer days with afternoon winds cooling the evening temperatures significantly. We believe this temperature variation, along with the volcanic soils, contribute to the phenolic characteristics and brightness of the wine, providing a structure for aging and signature dark cherry and spice flavors with intense color.
With aromatics of baking spice, cedar, and weathered leather, this Pinot presents with a smooth, rounded mouthfeel. Hints of pomegranate on the tongue along with compact suede tannins lingering on the front and mid palate.
