An upbeat, fruit-driven style with focused, ripe red-cherry and red-plum aromas and flavors that take center-stage. Drink now.
Elegant and focused, this well-crafted Willamette Valley Pinot Noir shows considerable cherry and currant aromas. Subtle earth and herbal tones plus a layer of spice flow through the palate, which is supported by soft tannins and vibrant acidity.
A beautiful vintage and a commitment to quality winemaking is well reflected in this release of “Red Cap” Pinot Noir. Crafted with fruit from a variety of growing sites, it is a reflection of the perfect terroir in the Willamette Valley. The warm, dry growing season led to ripe fruit and concentration that balances perfectly with our trademark texture, acidity and complexity. Medium-bodied, the palate is gushing with ripe Bing cherry, plum and a kiss of chocolate.
