2017 Fleur de Lis Vineyard Pinot Noir 750ml
The Fleur de Lis vineyard is located on the Evenstad Estate and is planted exclusively to Dijon clones. This ridge-top four-acre vineyard slopes gently to the east and ranges in elevation from 720 to 740 feet of elevation. It produces wines of exceptional aromatic complexity and structural finesse.
The 2017 Fleur de Lis Vineyard reveals itself in alluring layers as it unfurls in the glass. Composed exclusively Clone 667 this vintage, savory rhubarb compote and freshly-sliced strawberry aromatics speak to the arrival of Spring. An undercurrent of damp earth and pine bed place the wine’s provenance firmly in the Dundee Hills. An acidity that is at once elegant and affirming melds with silky tannins. A long lingering finish ensures the ageability of this exceptional vintage.
