|| | $42 | 2017 St. Innocent “Temperance Hill” Pinot Noir

Description

In 1988 Mark Vlossak created St. Innocent and has been its Winemaker and President since its inception in Jefferson, Oregon. Mark believes Pinot Noir is uniquely capable of capturing a sense of the place it is grown, the character of the vintage, and its gift of pairing with a wide variety of food. Philosophically, he looks both to the New and Old World for inspiration.

Mark picks ripe fruit at the point of maximum flavor complexity. This occurs at a moment that is short lived. To do that, he walks through all the vineyard blocks tasting small samples of berries to examine their juice flavor, skin tannins, balance of acidity, and texture of fruit. Once in the winery, the fruit is sorted by hand.

 

Lots of dried-strawberry and floral aromas with just hints of lemon rind, strawberry and walnut. Some nutmeg husk, too. It’s full-bodied with round, solid tannins and a rich finish.”
-James Suckling, 94 Points
