Winderlea Pinot Noir Variety Pack
A bottle each of our 2018 Willamette Valley, Crawford Beck, & Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot noir
2018 Willamette Valley Pinot noir
The nose is seductive; it’s marked by cinnamon, kirsch and a bouquet of baking spices. Flavors of pie crust on the nose transition smoothly to the palate, followed by cherries, plum, blueberry and silky mouthfeel. The finish is long and weighty while maintaining deftness and just the right amount of tannin structure.
2015 Crawford Beck Vineyard Pinot noir
Situated at the mouth of the Van Duzer Corridor, Crawford Beck boasts the longest hang time of any of our vineyards and provides a beautiful counterpoint to the rest of our portfolio. Notes of bramble, spice, cranberry and plum lead to a palate marked by cherry cola, huckleberry, cinnamon and dried blueberry. Mouthwatering structure, firm tannin, and a big finish will have you reaching for a second glass.
2017 Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot noir
Bright cherry nose with persimmon and baking spice notes. Red Cherry, hints of blueberry and apple-cranberry come alive on the palate with a full and lively mouthfeel. Brown sugar, brown butter, cassis and a hint of dried herbs and spice leads you into the finish that is showing some mouth drying tannins, hinting at this wines structure and age ability.
