A slow, cool fermentation helped preserve the lively aromatics of cherry lifesavers, chocolate, black fruit, earthy sage, accented with a hint of vanilla.
The texture is plush, elegant; with integrated tannins offering both substance and restraint. As always, a sturdy and sumptuous Howell Mountain Cabernet will develop and intensify artfully over time.
Racy and bright, 2012 Cornerstone Oregon Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, Artist Series is all about drinking now. 91 points - Wine Spectator
This inagural release is bursting with vibrant flavors and a beautiful structure.
A gentle and harmonious wine exhibiting a fresh, vibrant nose, generously laced with rich red and black berry fruit, subtle barrel spices with a touch of savory dried herbs to add further nuance and complexity.
This rich, powerful and dramatic 100% Syrah should be paired with the biggest steaks you can find in its youth, but with age will become even more layered and complex.
