This earns the ‘Classic' designation with a spot-on mix of blueberry and purple fruit that fill the palate. Those fresh flavors are bounced up with well-matched acids and lightly earthy tannins, along with hints of cedar from aging in 10% new oak. Editor's Choice

North Valley refers to the cluster of AVAs that are responsible for the major part of quality pinot production in the Willamette Valley. A very attractive pinot for the depth and volume of rich cherries. The palate has sweet cherry flavor and succulent tannin chew.
Aromas of black cherry, plum, and toasted cedar. The palate culminates into wild blueberry and bing cherry, followed with mint and an orange zest that finishes taut and supple.
