Lingua Franca Tongue ’n Cheek Pinot Noir 2015


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The fruit for this cuvée comes from one of the oldest vineyards in Oregon, with rocky, Jory soil. After 14 months in barrel, it has been tamed, showing medium weight, with red and black fruit and some crystallized preserve notes. The finished wine is round, smooth and gamey, with plum dumpling and spice flavors and dark undercurrents of smoke, tar, flint and roasted meat.

Wine EnthusiastFrom a low-yielding, rocky site, this is a well-structured wine with compelling minerality. Its immaculate raspberry fruit is etched with well-modulated streaks of stem and leaf. It was aged in one fifth new barriques.
