2015 Montinore Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Established in 1982, Montinore Estate is a 210-acre Demeter Certified Biodynamic and Stellar Certified Organic estate that lies at the northern end of the Willamette Valley appellation and along the east-facing slope of the Coastal Range foothills in Oregon. Our vineyards are planted on ideal sites for the seven grape varieties we grow, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Muller-Thurgau, Teroldego and Lagrein. Our close attention to each step of the grape-growing and winemaking process is rooted in the belief that exceptional wine is born of a sustained marriage of soil, climate and artful stewardship. Biodynamic farming, controlled fruit yields, carefully fermented wine and estate bottling help our family-run winery offer full-flavored vintages of distinctive character and quality.
This Pinot greets you with aromatics of black cherry, hints of smoke, cinnamon, clove with earthy undertones. Sweet fruit of juicy raspberry and red cherry are balanced with both cranberry and herbal notes. Savory, gentle coating tannins lead to a round clean finish. Enjoy now through 2022.
