2013 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.
This Pinot Noir brings full bright juicy notes of pie cherry, leather, and woody herbs on the palate. A wine that is smooth and rich with silky tannins, a luxuriously heavy and dry expression of the McMinnville AVA.
