The 2016 Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley) is a fabulous appellation-level wine. Crushed flowers, red berry fruit, game, spice and leather infuse a gorgeous, savory Pinot that will drink well upon release. All the elements fall into place effortlessly in this striking, overachieving Pinot from Failla. Fruit sources are Eola Springs, Chehalem Mountain, Bjornson and Seven Springs.
