HOLOCENE Pinot Noir 'Memorialis' 2015

The 2015 Holocene 'Memorialis' Pinot Noir is a fantastic project by superstar winemaker Todd Alexander, of Force Majeure. The wine is a 200 case production Oregon Pinot which was sourced from the Monks Gate vineyard located outside of Carlton in the Willamette Valley. The vineyard is west facing and has marine sedimentary soils. The wine begins with aromas of red raspberry, forest floor, anise and spicebox with red cherry. The wine has flavors of red cherry, red raspberry, cremini mushroom and bright acidity. This has a saline aspect with nice minerality, as this will age gracefully into the next decade.
