This dark, rich Pinot Noir opens with aromas of black cherry and tea leaves. On the palate, the dark fruit expands to include notes of blackberry jam, fig, and plum, with an undercurrent of brown sugar. Well-integrated oak tannins and a long, lingering finish make this wine a perfect choice to enjoy on a special occasion or with a fine meal.
Fennwood Vineyard was planted in 2007 & 2008 according to Willamette Valley pioneer David Adelsheim’s vision to match each soil series and elevation change to specific variety, clone, and rootstock. This careful planning and execution led to a very complex vineyard layout that enhances the potential success of each block.

Food Pairing Notes
The lushness of this Pinot calls for rich dishes like duck or cassoulet. It would also be an excellent choice for coq au vin.
One of the most temperamental grapes to grow, Pinot Noir requires a long, cool growing season to get fully mature. Few places in the world have the conditions necessary and Oregon’s Willamette Valley is considered to be one of the best, along with Burgundy.
