2016 West Hill Pinot Noir
This is a standout: made from a blend of Pommard selection and Dijon 115, the wine has an almost perfume-like, heady quality. The aromatics suggest violets, typical of wines from our Yamhill-Carlton AVA, with a fruit profile in the blue/black range. The palate is juicy with nicely integrated tannins and a smooth finish. 17.5% whole cluster, 40% new French oak. Less than 247 cases made.
