An energetic Pinot Noir with dark fruit and earthy umami, framed by bright acidity and length.

Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Vineyard: St. Dolores Estate, Temperance Hill, Gemini
Location: Willamette Valley, OR
Alcohol: 13%

Deep, saturated garnet color. The nose is dark Bing cherry, clove, black pepper, beef broth and dried mushrooms with a hint of snuff and agave. The palate presents as super energetic acidity and concentrated red fruit (as in, just-ripe cherry), with incredible length and persistence.

Six-to-eight-barrel-lot, wild-yeast fermentations in stainless steel, 100% barrel aged for 17 months: 30% new, 18% one year, 16% two year, 36% three year or older. Bottled unfined and unfiltered in March 2018.

This is JK Carriere’s flagship bottling and represents three very pure vineyards: their St. Dolores Estate (8 years), Temperance Hill (37 years) and Gemini (25 years).
