The 2016 'Villages Cuvèe' Pinot Noir is a lovely showing from St. Innocent. This Cuvèe is composed primarily from the Vitae Springs Vineyard, a cool site on thin volcanic soil located in the hills south of Salem, Oregon with Fruit from other sites completing the blend. As this begins to open it releases aromatics of citrus blossom and red currant aromatics hit you immediately. The mouthfeel is soft and supple, as the red fruits dominate the palate alongside some lighter citrus tones. This is an outstanding effort as an to open St. Innocent's stellar lineup of Pinot Noir.
