Oregon Pinot Noir

French Connection: 2015 RÉSONANCE Pinot Noir “Willamette Valley”

2015 RÉSONANCE Pinot Noir "Willamette Valley"
$39.95 bottle/ $383.00 case

Very excited to offer this new release from the much talked about Oregon outpost of Burgundy’s Maison Louis Jadot and their legendary winemaker Jacques Tardy. Not to give the spoiler, but this 2015 is fabulous! Incredible elegance and style, this is complex, rich, and beautifully balanced. Great now and sure to only get better with a few years in your cellar. A very exciting from some experienced hands!

“Supple and elegantly structured, with expressive raspberry and orange zest aromas and polished flavors that pick up depth and momentum toward a spicy finish. Drink now through 2023. 93 points.” –Wine Spectator
