This classic New World expression of Oregon Pinot noir features nuances and flavors that are a hallmark of the region's varied soils and cool climate. Using Ponzi's most established vineyards at its base, Laurelwood Pinot Noir is blended with Pinot noir from throughout the Laurelwood District AVA.
“This perfumed nose shows beautiful spice notes of black pepper, nutmeg and mesquite with floral aromas of lavender and dried rose petal. Ripe blueberry, raspberry and blackberry bramble mingle throughout. The mouth mimics the nose with spice notes, maple, black cherry reduction and dried sage. Chocolate nibs, malted and cinnamon frame the sweet mid palate, fresh with juicy acidity and finishing with lovely long, dusty tannins.” - Luisa Ponzi, Director of Winemaking & Viticulture
