Beaux Freres Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Brilliant magenta. Mineral-accented red berries, incense and candied flowers on the expansive, seductively perfumed nose, with a spicy accent adding vivacity. Sappy, alluringly sweet and sharply delineated on the palate, offering juicy cherry, raspberry preserve and lavender pastille flavors that are sharpened by a zesty Asian spice nuance. Fine-grained and seamless in texture, finishing extremely long and precise, with resonating spiciness and smooth, well-knit tannins.
Remarkably and seamlessly complex, with a polished and refined core wrapped in silky raspberry and blueberry flavors, accented by savory spice and orange zest hints. The long finish builds toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2025.
From the estate vineyard in the Ribbon Ridge AVA in Oregon, the 2016 Pinot Noir The Beaux Frères Vineyard sports a translucent ruby hue as well as a classic Burgundian bouquet of dried cherries, mulberries, forest floor, baking spices, and flowery incense notes. This carries to a medium-bodied 2016 that has an elegant, silky texture, beautiful balance between its fruit, acidity, and tannins, and a great finish. This wonderfully complex, nuanced, elegant Pinot Noir will evolve for a solid decade.
