Belle Pente - Belle Pente Vineyard - Willamette Valley, Oregon - 750 ml

About This Item


Overview: 2015 was almost as warm as 2014, but with much cooler nights. This preserved more natural acidity in the wines, so they are big and rich but also light on their feet. This version of the Estate Vineyard is impeccably balanced, hitting the trifecta of ripe fruit, fresh acidity, and silky tannins. Although the intention for this wine is always 10 years in the cellar, it is a delight to drink today.

Tasting notes:  Shimmering red. Powerful aromas of fresh red berries, cherry pit, blood orange and minerals, with a touch of licorice adding depth. Sweet and seamless in the mouth, offering densely packed black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that put on weight and pick up a spicy topnote with air. Shows very good breadth and seamless texture, finishing with impressive clarity, harmonious tannins and a lingering red fruit preserve quality. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media
