2016 Coles Valley Vineyard Pinot Noir
Duck Pond Cellars
Garnet hues with ruby encircling the edges as you swirl the wine in your glass. Aromatics heavy with cherry and strawberry. The palate matches the cherry on the nose with sweet pie cherries leading into earth tones and red currant. A dark and brooding wine with a creamy finish.
Just south of the Willamette Valley lies the warmer Umpqua Valley AVA, home to the 300 acre Cole’s Valley Vineyard. Fruit from this vineyard site produces highly perfumed wines with bright fruitiness and a pleasing softness on the palate.
