This 2017 single-vineyard Aurora Pinot Noir was established on 22-year old vines, grown in the rich Laurelwood soil of the Chehalem Mountains. The Aurora Vineyard is known for it's incredible consistency producing superb fruit. It is the foundation of our most celebrated Pinot noir.
This Pinot noir is crafted exclusively with fruit from Ponzi’s LIVE Certified Sustainable Aurora Vineyard.
“ This exotic nose of Mexican spiced chocolate, roasted coffee, smoked meat and Cherrywood lead to a blue fruited mouth reminiscent of cola, amareno cherries with a touch of the salinity of squid ink. This elegant and complex wine maintains a tension and thread of acidity throughout finishing long with brambly, ripe tannins.”
