2014 Yamhill-Carlton Assemblage Pinot Noir
This special blend of Pinot Noir is crafted to showcase one of our favorite micro-AVA's in Oregon. Grown entirely on Willakenzie soils, this wine shows the lush dark fruits, exotic spices, and silky texture we've come to know and love from this distinct region. Plenty gregarious upon release, this wine will benefit from appropriate cellaring. Only 10 barrels were selected for this blend.
The Yamhill Vineyard sits above the town of Yamhill in the Willamette Valley and lies at an elevation of 400 feet. Dried cherries, vanilla, and peppermint notes are laced throughout its deep bouquet. We find creamy strawberries, caramel and soft coffee flavors on the palate, carried by balanced and structured tannins.
