Aromas of black cherry, plum, and toasted cedar. The palate culminates into wild blueberry and bing cherry, followed with mint and an orange zest that finishes taut and supple. - Winemaker Notes

"This earns the ‘Classic' designation with a spot-on mix of blueberry and purple fruit that fill the palate. Those fresh flavors are bounced up with well-matched acids and lightly earthy tannins, along with hints of cedar from aging in 10% new oak."

"North Valley refers to the cluster of AVAs that are responsible for the major part of quality pinot production in the Willamette Valley. A very attractive pinot for the depth and volume of rich cherries. The palate has sweet cherry flavor and succulent tannin chew."
