2021 Willamette Valley, OR
$55
BROWSING ONLY
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.

This red wine offers aromas of dark cherries, antique rose and earth. The palate opens with notes of red fruit and mineral, accentuated by firm acidity and a generous mid-palate.
