Lingua Franca Willamette AVNI Pinot Noir 2018
This project by master somm Larry Stone is one of the purest Oregon Pinot's that we have tasted. A transparent red color shows Alpine strawberry, red cherry, rose petal and plum aromas with wet stone, and a savory meatiness on the palate. A quarter whole cluster and 20% new French oak fills in the fruit perfectly with depth and richness. A great price on this sought-after wine.
