Product Description

“Our Villages Cuvée is produced from Pinot noir grapes grown in Oregon’s northern Willamette Valley. At its core are grapes grown at Vitae Springs Vineyard, a cool site on thin volcanic soil located in the hills south of Salem, Oregon. Fruit from other sites are blended to create a Pinot noir that complements rich white meat and fish dishes. To enhance this match, we blend to maximize both the spectrum of flavors and length on the palate while minimizing the use of new oak. The composition for this bottling is: Vitae Springs Vineyard 50%, Zenith Vineyard 21%, Freedom Hill Vineyard 11%, Temperance Hill 11%, and Momtazi Vineyard 7%.” Heady aromas of sweet, ground spice, fresh berries and black cherries with hints of mint and moist earth. Dark red fruit flavors, loads of spice and white pepper burst onto your palate. This is followed by a richer dark berry compote, cigar box, and hints of Asian five spice. The overall impression is of impressive length and breadth as well as remarkable pungent flavors while embracing round tannins well into the finish.
