Red Wine by St. Innocent from Willamette Valley, Oregon. Balanced aromas of white flowers, cardamon, red berries, and dried leaves intertwine in the nose of the 2014 Pinot Noir, Zenith Vineyard. A broad mixture of red berries coats your palate along with sweet spice, and a more visceral red floral base note. Very fresh acidity and broad sweet tannins create a broad and lengthy finish to this well structured Pinot Noir. The vineyard is a south facing bowl at the west end of and east facing valley in the center of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. This location collects light all day, but is protected from afternoon heat by the harger ridge just to the west. Together it creates a lovely brightness and freshness to St. Innocent’s Pinot Noirs.
