Anna’s Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

100% pinot noir

Chehalem, n. a. a corruption of the Atfalati Indian word “Chahelim,” a name given in 1877 to one of the bands of Atfalati, b. a mountain range located in the Willamette Valley of Oregon

Anna’s Vineyard, n. an eight acre Owen Roe estate property in the Chehalem Mountains AVA

The aromas are redolent of sweet spice, barrel and red raspberries. These carry through to the silky palate, with more bright berry flavors, beautifully integrated acidity and gracefully poised balance. Definitely pinot in the Cadence house style. The balance and gently present tannins should guarantee beautiful evolution over the next decade.
