ALEXANA 2012 PINOT NOIR "REVANA" WILLAMETTE VALLEY 750mL

If you thought Revana was just a Napa Valley property, you were flat wrong! Less than a decade after he established his successful Napa Valley venture, Dr. Madaiah Revana set his sights on Oregonís Willamette Valley. He fell in love with Pinot Noir and wanted to make Pinot Noir that would rival those from Burgundy. His search lead him to winemaker Lynn Penner-Ash, one of the most talented winemakers in Oregon, and a person Wine Spectator believes has "...the perfect blend of science, artistry and passion."

Due to the transition of soil types from Volcanic to Sedimentary in the Revana Vineyard, the fruit tends to produce unique flavor profiles that stray slightly from what we have come to expect from the Dundee Hills. Pleasant earthiness is highlighted by aromas gushing with red fruit and cocoa nibs, culminating with a caress of sweet red plums. On the entrance, the Pinot Noir is delicate, and teases with red berry bramble, then explodes mid-palate with juicy intense fruit. The transition to the finish is refined, leaving beautiful flavors of red currants and terrior.

WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - "Seductively aromatic, with firm tannins around a lithe core of black cherry, smoke and a touch of mint, finishing with harmony, elegance and a steely mineral character. Approachable, but may develop more with cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2022. 1,800 cases made."
