Description
The Gran Moraine Vineyard is the source for some of Oregon's finest Pinot Noirs, with this being no exception. Tucked into the foothills of the Coastal Range, the vineyard is cooler than most, and delivers Pinots with fresh pure red fruit, fine tannins and chalky acidity. Winemaker Shane Moore ages this Pinot Noir in large, mostly used oak barrels to lend subtle spice without overpowering the delicate fruit. Don't miss this elegant and fresh take on the Pacific Northwest’s favorite grape.

Lively acidity upfront with energetic and youthful tannin structure. The mid-palate transitions seamlessly into a long and dark fruit-driven finish. Acidity pulls forward off the finish creating a perfect paring opportunity for rich earthy foods.
