New Arrival

2012 Lenne "LeNez" Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton

$34.99/bottle or $349.90/case of 12

Soft and rich, the 2012 vintage in Oregon's Willamette Valley produced wines with generous fruit profiles and immediate accessibility. Deftly balanced, concentrated flavors of plum, black cherry, anise and mocha are beautifully woven together before pleasant mid-palate grip and a lingering, fine-grained tannic structure round things out.
