2013 LA PAULÉE

Pinot Noir

_

As always, La Paulée brings together fruit from each of our core vineyard sources: Maresh and Nysa in the Dundee Hills AVA, Azana Vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains AVA, and Ribbon Ridge in the Ribbon Ridge AVA.

The 2013 La Paulée shows an exceptional purity, with a focus on red berry fruits and a rich flavor impact wrapped in an elegant and refined body. This one will drink nicely young, but will continue to flesh-out in bottle over the years – likely at its best 2016-2018+.

Brambleberries, raspberries and baking spice on the nose with hints of tea leaf and cinnamon. The mouthfeel is elegant with very fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Best La Paulée yet!
