2014 ALEXANA “TERROIR SERIES” PINOT NOIR, WILLAMETTE VALLEY
Exceedingly sensual, satiny-smooth on the palate, and adorned by disarmingly vivid aromas of Morello cherries, pressed boysenberries, red plums, violets and dark chocolate, Alexana’s new Terroir Series Pinot Noir is infectiously delightful. Brought to life by Lynn Penner-Ash, who is widely recognized as one of Oregon’s most gifted Pinot makers. Lynn crafted the high-scoring wines at Rex Hill Winery from ’88 through ’02 when she left to focus on her own label, Penner-Ash… At $29.99/btl this absolutely brilliant interpretation of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is simply one of the greatest Pinots that I’ve tasted this year in this wonderfully realistic price range.
As the sister winery to Revana Vineyards in St Helena, Alexana is quickly building it’s own stellar reputation of excellence… In fact, their 2010 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir ranked #17 in the world on the Wine Spectator top 100 list in 2013, and was the #2 Pinot Noir on the list. The 2014 Terroir Series hails from a vintage tied for the second highest rated vintage in Oregon’s history, based on the Wine Spectator’s vintage chart. If you’re on the lookout for a truly top-level Pinot Noir, but without the high price tag usually associated with them, Alexana’s Terroir Series is for you…

2014 ALEXANA "TERROIR SERIES" PINOT NOIR, WILLAMETTE VALLEY
Tasting Notes, "A striking bouquet layered with chocolate covered cherries, wild berry preserve, plums and violets, erupts from the glass... Satiny smooth on the palate with an abundance of juicy blackberries, boysenberries, white flowers, cinnamon and vanilla. Rich and round on the palate and without a hard edge to be found, anywhere... Enjoy now and over the next 6 years."
