2016 Benton-Lane Estate Pinot Noir
2016 was another warm year with full ripeness in the fruit which allowed for the fruit notes in the wine to be a blend of black fruit (boysenberry, black cherry, blueberry and cassis) and red fruit (cherry, cranberry and raspberry). This brings more depth and concentration to the wine, along with a fine balance with all components getting along well with each other. This makes the wine a synergy and much more enjoyable. The wine is rich and deep with flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, cranberry, cassis and white pepper. The finish is the sweet flavor of toasted oak from French wine barrels. This wine will pair well with savory red meats. It will continue to evolve over the next 4 – 6 years.
2017 Benton-Lane Estate Pinot Noir
This wine opens with aromas of perfume and bright red fruits like cherries and cranberries with subtle notes of cinnamon red hots. The wine has a nice acidic balance and it exhibits bright red fruits of cherry and cranberry. It finishes with a hint of pepper along with toasty barrel notes.
2018 Benton-Lane Estate Pinot Noir
Deep and rich while maintaining freshness, the 2018 Benton-Lane Estate Pinot Noir is complex without being heavy. Vibrant notes of tart cranberry awaken the palate balanced by warm winter spices, currants and dark cherries. This true expression of Oregon pinot noir sparks memories of cool fall days, warmed by a wood fire.
