Averaen Pinot Noir 2018, Willamette Valley, Oregon


Willamette Valley, Oregon

Pinot Noir

The Averaen opens with aromatic plumes of red fruits and earth – spiced raspberry and macerated strawberry aromas are blackened by sappy/maple tones and elevated by fresh-cut flowers, cardamom and sanguine notes. A lively and explosive entry of summer berries gives way to a decked-out mid-palate wrapping the red-blue berry character around a generous core of sage, allspice and licorice. Tightly knit layers of fruit, earth and oak & stem derived tannins provide a long, electrifying finish. -Importer's Notes
