2015 Nicholas Pinot noir

2015 Nicholas Pinot noir


This 2015 Pinot noir offers a lovely, floral nose full of dried violets and bay leaf. The bold tannic structure of this wine shows toasted cardamom and huckleberry, with white pepper on the finish. An excellent wine to pair with lamb or other game.

The 33-acre Nicholas Vineyard sits on a south-easterly slope of the Chehalem Mountains American Viticultural Area (AVA) in the Laurelwood sector on wind-blown loess (ice age silt) soils covering basalt.
