Trisaetum Pinot Noir 2019, Ribbon Ridge Estate, Willamette Valley, Oregon

This Pinot Noir is a combination of barrels from Trisaetum’s three estate vineyards, representing the best AVAs of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Deep ruby in color, with aromas of cranberry, blackberry, and baking spices. Dark fruited flavors of plum are brightened by summer blackberry; hints of licorice and star anise linger on the complex finish. Plush tannins round out the vibrant acidity and allow the luscious fruit to shine through to the finish. Cooperage: 100% French oak barrels from eight coopers, selected for tightness of grain, low tannin and light toast levels, allowing the fruit profile to shine.
