Illahe Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
"Aromas of blueberry, red fruits, licorice fern, with light char and vanilla clove. The perceivable fruit develops into a round mid-palate, smooth tannins, and notes of rose petal. This pinot is all estate grown, fermented with native yeast and is well balanced, clarified by racking (no fining or filtering), maintaining a layering mouth feel and acidity. The finish lingers with elegant persistence. Barrel aged for 10 months in 10% new oak." -Winery
Illahe takes old school producing to heart with small lots, the use of a horse drawn plow and a wooden basket press! The philosophy is to be as natural and sustainable as possible while making wonderful Willamette Valley wines.
