2018 Pinot Noir
These Pinot Noir grapes are grown along the banks of the Columbia River at both Rio Vista Wines and Antoine Creek Vineyards. Elicit aromas of chocolate-coated maraschino cherries, dark cocoa, and vanilla notes are conjured from the extended wood aging process that this wine faces. This Pinot Noir is fully dry while racy acidity serves as its backbone . Fine-grained tannins balance the zesty acids and support bright red fruits, earth, and haunting suggestions of Mediterranean herbs.
