The 2020 Grande Cuvée Pinot noir is sourced from a collection of family-owned vineyards across the Willamette Valley. This wine overflows with deep aromas of baked cherries, fresh garden herbs, and applewood chips. The palate is exuberant with tart yet supple red fruit notes and a warm spice through to the finish. After successful careers in the Oregon wine industry, the husband and wife team of Laurent Montalieu and Danielle Andrus Montalieu purchased an 80-acre estate to commemorate their marriage. In May 2002, they launched Soléna by releasing their first bottling and, shortly thereafter, opening a tasting room in Carlton. Soléna is the combination of the Spanish and French words Solana and Soleil, celebrating the sun and the moon, and the name that Laurent and Danielle gave to their daughter. 100% Pinot Noir. Willamette Valley AVA. Aged 6 months. 15% new oak. 14 day skin contact.
