2015 "Vespidae" Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley, OR
What we love
The “Vespidae” is Pinot producer J.K. Carriere’s flagship wine. A gorgeous garnet color, with even prettier aromas of roses, ripe cherry, caramel, and cedar. After a few minutes, coffee/toffee notes appear. In the mouth, flavors of bright red fruits – cherry, raspberry, and pomegranate. The acidity sings vibrantly, yet just a brush of tannin lays it balanced on the palate.
