Deep and rich while maintaining freshness, the 2018 Benton-Lane Estate Pinot Noir is complex without being heavy. Vibrant notes of tart cranberry awaken the palate balanced by warm winter spices, currants and dark cherries. This true expression of Oregon pinot noir sparks memories of cool fall days, warmed by a wood fire.

Considerably riper than the previous vintage, it's just a bit different stylistically, though in the same quality range. It opens a bit chewy, with accents of lemon verbena and pekoe tea. Those herbal flavors are more obvious than the light red fruits, which are quickly overtaken by drying tannins.
