Stave & Stone Wine Estates, Artúr Legacy Estate Pinot Noir 2018, Columbia Gorge, Oregon
Tasting Note: A reserve pinot noir that earns its reserve status with just-bruised red fruit that sings.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red cherry and strawberry with a hint of oak.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied pinot noir has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ultimately completing with medium-plus finish.
The wine sees 50% new French oak and is made with 40% whole-cluster fruit.
Bottle Note: Broken Boulder Vineyard, Apple House Block, Columbia Gorge. Our Estate Pinot Noir is lovingly dedicated to the legacy of hard work and perseverance left to use by the Fletcher Family’s 100 years or farming in the Hood River Valley.
