A classic Oregon Pinot Noir, this cuvee is a combination of both estate-grown fruit and thoughtfully selected vineyard blocks from partner vineyards. An intentional range of soils, aspects, and clones of Pinot Noir contribute to a balance that only an artful combination of sites can create. This wine leads with black raspberry and pie cherry with notes of sandalwood and pressed flowers. The palate has raspberry, cherry, anise, and fruit leather with a dense structure and a long finish.
