2015 HUNDRED SUNS “OLD EIGHT CUT” PINOT NOIR, WILLAMETTE VALLEY
Pulling you in with it’s dramatic and pleasure peaking bouquet, this new Pinot project is destined for success… Crafted by talented Pinot artist Grant Coulter who spent 9 years honing his skills at Beaux Freres, and at under thirty per bottle this is one of the best new Pinots that we’ve come across in 2017. Overloading your sensory receptors with vivid expressions of black cherry, Asian spices, crushed violets, and wild strawberry. Immediately on entry, layers of fruit detonate, triggering an alliance of focused, penetrating fruit and round, supple volume. Completely under-the-radar, and micro-produced, I recommend getting on board with this one before it disappears beneath the horizon.
Sourced from three diverse vineyards, including Jessie James, Sequitur and Flanerie, this gorgeous interpretation of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir will leave a lasting impression. Saturating your palate in a basket of sweet berries, layered in spices, incense and red plum, this confident, fleshy and stacked Pinot shouldn’t be missed…

2015 HUNDRED SUNS "OLD EIGHT CUT" PINOT NOIR, WILLAMETTE VALLEY
Winery Notes: "The Jessie James vineyard is slightly higher than our other vineyards, so it tends to ripen later than the rest, yielding a truly unique wine. The fermentation was slower to start and took its sweet time finishing up. When it first went to barrel it had all kinds of crazy aromatics: the fruit was red crushed strawberries and dried cranberries with spices like cinnamon, white pepper, and anise. Underneath those layers emerged savory notes like game meat, wool, and hot dirt. This lot of barrels took some interesting turns through elevage, but we always knew that they would add dimension and character to the final bend. They did not disappoint."
