2014 The Four Graces Lindsay's Reserve Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
Strawberries and a suggestion of milk chocolate are followed with scents of lemon balm, Eucalyptus and fallen pine needles. On the palate, cranberries and Brazil nuts are enhanced with notes of cedar. While this wine is lovely in its youth the dusty tannins suggest this bottling will age with grace.
100% Pinot Noir

The 2014 growing season was just about as good as it gets. Some saying it could be the best season in more than a decade, which we agree with! The summer’s consistently hot days were followed by warm nights and just the right amount of sprinkling rain. The higher than average overnight lows allowed grapes to mature faster without putting stress on the vines, which lets the grapes come together in balance and flavor to produce an excellent wine. Yields are higher than normal and quality of fruit is very high. All fruit was hand harvested on September 16th 2014.
All fruit for this wine was sourced from Block 17 of our Doe Ridge Vineyard which is composed of Dijon clone 777.
