2014 "Nuages" Pinot Noir

Named in tribute to one of winemaker Jay’s favorite gypsy jazz tunes, "Nuages" Pinot Noir is our Chehalem Mountains blend. Nuages (French for “clouds”) also pays homage to the moderating influence of Oregon’s autumn cloud cover, which slows ripening to allow for the long hang time that creates fully developed flavors. The 2014 vintage is sourced from our estate, the Appassionata vineyard, and the Lia's Vineyard.

2014 Chehalem Mountains Nuages Pinot Noir
A quietly assertive pinot with a dark frame,
this leads with a whiff of tar and cinnamon
stick, fruit skin and caramel.  All come 
together with a day's air, buoyed by vinous 
tannins that frame the fruit with and easy
elegance. 
 
Vinous

Vivid red. Smoke-tinged cherry and black raspberry scents, backed by vanilla and allspice nuances. Sappy and appealingly sweet, offering intense red and dark berry flavors that spread out slowly on the back half. Rich yet energetic, finishing with strong, spicy thrust, harmonious tannins and a late jolt of sweet cola.
