Gran Moraine Yamhill Carlton Pinot Noir 2014
Aromas: Huckleberry, bright red cherry, Herbes de Provence, soy sauce, wild strawberry, pomegranate, sphagnum moss, shiso leaf. Flavors: Cranberry and rose hips up front that transform into orange zest and Meyer lemon on the mid pallet. This is followed by morel mushroom, red cedar, and exotic spices as allspice and mace. Texture: Precise but broad; exhibiting restrained power and elegance combined with immense aging potential. Finish lingers giving impressions of pipe tobacco, earth, white sage and pure cocoa. Shaped like a teardrop rippling outward at the point of contact with a still body of water.
