2021 Lingua Franca Avni Pinot Noir Willamette Valley


Total $40

Estate grown Avni 2021 Pinot Noir is subtle and mouth filling, immediately pleasing and rich. The large proportion of complexly flavored fruit from shallow Gelderman soils combines seamlessly with the richer fruit flavors of Pommard and 115 clone Pinot Noir on Jory and Nekia soils. 2021 Avni will count among the best we have ever made.

The wine has many layers that unfold with both red and black cherry fruit, tea, rose petal, savory and mineral nuances, finishing with a round, plummy texture. 

ABV 13%

Vintage 2021
