Winemaker Nick & Sheila Nicholas Notes
Barrels: 21% New French oak , 8% once-filled Clones: 33% Dijon 114, 27% Dijon 115, 15% Pommard, 14% Dijon 777, 11% Dijon 667 This is our “flagship” wine and reflects all five original blocks of Pinot noir. San Francisco Chronicle: Oregon’s Top 2011 Pinots: The Nicholases’ wines are always delicate, and this blend of their five estate blocks walks with very light feet. It's one to drink sooner, packed with citrus oil, carob, and delicious, tart wild strawberry. 90 Points: Wine Advocate “A lovely sachet-like meld of floral and herbal aromas along with scents of fresh cherry, elderberry, black tea and leather emerges from the glass! And the buoyant, almost delicate palate impression is corresp ...more... ondingly complex. A juicy, tangy finish enlists tangerine rind and scallop-like sweet-salinity for an at once soothing, intriguing and downright refreshing finish. Those who, like me, cherished Truchot-Martin red Burgundies will, I suspect, find this reminiscent of them. I would not be surprised to see it perform well through 2015 and perhaps beyond; but given its delicacy and youthful complexity, I would favor early enjoyment.” 90 Points: PinotFile Light reddish purple color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with aromas of strawberry, red cherry, spice, red rose petal and dried herbs. Demure and elegant with flavors of red cherry, red plum and strawberry. Very giving with soft, dry tannins and juicy acidity. A delightful wine that exudes pinot elegance. 90 points: Editor’s Choice, Wine Enthusiast A lovely elegant effort that captures the essence of this light vintage without sacrificing detail, length or flavor.
