2015 Pinot Noir, PRIMA, Chehalem Mountains 750ml

2012 Pinot Noir, PRIMA, Chehalem Mountains 750ml

Our fourth vintage of this ultra-premium Pinot noir, which represents the finest expression & interpretation of our Estate vineyard’s unique terroir. It is only be crafted in worthy vintages. Yields per block averaged 1.9 tons/acre. The 2012 Prima combines only three beautiful and distinctive barrels from our entire cellar - one barrel of Dijon clone 115, one of clone 114 and finally, one from Block 1 Pommard clone.  PRIMA was aged in bottle for nearly one and a half years and kept secret until nurtured to perfection. This ‘reserve’ bottling is a dedication to our family’s heritage as distinguished by the abbreviated crest on the front label. The name PRIMA means ‘FIRST’ among other adjectives such as ‘BEST, TOP, FOREMOST & PRIME’. Marianne & Ron hope to present this wine as one of the ‘first’ in a tradition of many exceptional & distinctive wines leading the way for generations to come. May you enjoy this wine for the ages! Matthieu Gille, Winemaker

"Fresh and vital, with inviting plum and spice flavors, riding on a taut, mineral-accented structure that lets the flavors gain momentum into the long and focused finish. Best from 2017 through 2022." – HS
 

TASTING NOTES: Dense ruby in color with alluring aromas and gobs of sweet black cherry, raspberries, sandalwood and spice flavors. All beautifully integrated in the plush, layered and bold Pinot. There is a touch of underbrush and licorice on the expansive mid-palate which transitions to ripe silky tannins and a long, resonant finish that goes on and on. Seamless and effortless, with an aristocratic balance of harmony and energy. Opens tremendously only after a couple of hours to reveal additional layers, complexity and a certain softness. Drink now-15+ years.
