2019 Alto Rogue Valley Pinot Noir
Layers and layers of fruit cascade on the nose of this densely aromatic Pinot. On the front end notes of red raspberry, macerated strawberry, and plum collide with an earthy cedar note while darker notes of plum and blueberry take their time to emerge. While the nose is ripe and sweet the palate occupies the other side of the coin and maintains a bright and fresh acidity, leaner fruits of cranberry and cherry, and still maintains its woodsy character. The finish remains lean but a wonderful tension is created with the added texture of a multitude of fine grain tannins.
