2016 'Aspect' Pinot Noir 750ml
Crowning the southernmost peak of the Dundee Hills, the magical Evenstad Estate is one of the most outstanding sites in the world for growing distinctive Pinot Noir. Dry-farmed on Jory soil at elevations ranging from 520 to 825 feet, its seven individual vineyard blocks have multiple exposures and produce some of our most prized wines, including Mark Bradford, Grace, and Côte Sud. We crafted this unique blend to exemplify the terroir synergy possible from diverse aspects of soil, elevation, orientation and clonal selection found within one remarkable vineyard estate.
The 2016 Aspect displays luscious, dark red cherry, black raspberry, and pleasing barrel spices on the nose. Its silky texture and rich mouthfeel give way to a beautifully long and lingering finish. A wine that is both beautiful now or with decades in the cellar.
