Country: USA, Oregon
Tasting Notes: The 2012 Laurène has a lovely, intense, bright ruby color. On the nose, the wine is a vibrant mix of red and black berries, red and black cherries, fresh spice and wild herbs. There is a delicate touch of oak, which integrates nicely. On the palate, the 2012 Laurène is rich, complex and layered, with excellent structure and a beautiful long finish. There is no question that it is a powerful vintage, but there is focus and a sense of refinement.
Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir
