This brilliantly ruby tinted wine has classic aromas of cherries, red currants and raspberries with more subtle hints of baking spice and vanilla layered in. On the palate, it exhibits lithe fruitiness and lingering cherry and berry flavors. The wine shows extraordinary balance and finesse with fine grained tannins that provide a nice framework to the silky mid-palate.
Benton-Lane is a family owned winery and vineyard located in the tenderloin of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. We produce Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and small amounts of Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay. Benton-Lanes Oregon Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris wines are currently distributed in 49 states and several international markets.
Benton-Lane has designed its own system for caring for its land which incorporates the best parts of the Sustainable, Organic and Biodynamic methods. This program was designed after seven years of certification under the L.I.V.E. sustainability program. During this time we began to realize that no one program was ideal in preserving and protecting our land. So we took the best parts of each program, added some measures of our own and gave birth to our own system of ensuring the health of our vineyards.
