2013 Brick House Pinot Noir Cuvée du Tonnelier

Estate: Brick House Vineyard

Region: Ribbon Ridge, Willamette Valley, Oregon, United States of America

Tasting Note:January 28, 2017

A mix of garnet and brick red. Elegant nose with lots of floral and red cherry notes. Layered with some raspberries and strawberries too before some rocky notes in the finish. Moderate acidity (5.5/10) and moderate tannins (5/10). Light to medium bodied. Bright on the palate with tons of red berries and perfumey notes. A little toasty in the finish too. Smooth texture, long and lingering finish. A little bit of cherry cola and cinnamon too.

Cuvée du Tonnelier means "the barrel maker's cuvée" and is blended from the oldest vines on the farm (planted in 1990). Made of 10% whole-cluster and matured in 35% new oak.
