2016 Coles Valley 777 Pinot Noir
Duck Pond Cellars
Coles Valley Vineyard
25% New French Oak, 75% Neutral French Oak
True to the 777 clone the aromatics and palate are full of spices and currant notes. This full-bodied wine shows cherry, toasted oak and chamomile on the nose. Boysenberry, nasturtium and earth tones round out this wine with a medium to long 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.
