RUBY VINEYARD Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley 'Flora’s Reserve' 2016

Sourced from the older vines in the vineyard, first planted in 1973 (Wadenswil Clone 1), this shows nice earthy tones on the nose with dried thyme, peat moss and black tea with wild blackberry puree. The palate is jam-packed full of acidity, with a soft mouthfeel. Black tea, black cherry pie and hints of black truffle flavors all nicely combine. Surprisingly delicate considering the heat of the vintage, this shows really good elegance and poise.
