Resonance Vineyard Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2018
JS92: "A medium-bodied red with aromas and flavors of dried cranberries, licorice, earth and walnut husk. Savory dried-mushroom character and dried leaves, too, framed by sleek, fine tannins."
WS92: "Pinpoint in structure and revealing a dense core of lively minerality, this is a handsome red with cherry and savory tea flavors that build tension toward medium-grained tannins."
Résonance Vineyard is the first vineyard outside of France to be owned by the legendary Maison Louis Jadot since its inception in 1859. Vines were planted here in 1981 on some of the oldest soils in Willamette Valley.
The site produces wines of notable complexity. Organic grapes are dry-farmed and hand-harvested. The estate Pinot Noir delivers notes of black cherry, black truffle, spice, and violet, with a vibrant minerality that comes through on the long finish.
