2016 AUTHENTIQUE Keeler Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir
Double Gold at the Oregon Wine Competition! A blend of my favorite barrels from the 2016 vintage! A buyer just commented to me that this wine has all elements you want in a pinot noir and all in balance. 40% New French Oak and aged 16 months in extra tight grain barrels. Made with Biodynamic grapes. A transparent reflection of the nuance and power of the Keeler Estate Vineyard. Red and dark fruit, orange peel, pipe tobacco and granite. Medium bodied with good frame of compact tannin, juicy acidity, it gives ripe cherries and currants in the mouth segueing to long finish.
