Beckham Estate Pinot Noir 2014

Chehalem Mountain , Willamette Valley, Oregon, United StatesOrganic, dry-farmed on volcanic Jory and Saum soils, this vintage of Estate Pinot Noir is four clones (Pommard, W├Ądenswil, Dijon 115 and Dijon 777) of pinot noir. Wild yeast fermented and 35 percent whole cluster, this was aged in French oak for 15 months, ten percent of which is new. Perfumed black raspberry, sun-ripened strawberry, forest berries and smoked pepper is housed with fine, firm tannins on a medium bodied palate. There's a lovely, approachability to this serious wine, making it highly accessible and drinkable now.Tasted: 13 July 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: USA 30.00 winery direct Producer: Beckham Estate VineyardVarietal: Pinot Noir
