Alexana Winery 2015 Fennwood Vineyard Pinot Noir, Yamhill Carlton, $65

By on November 20, 2017

This Dundee Hills winery pulls this lot from Fennwood Vineyard at the southeast edge of the Yamhill-Carlton appellation, a rather tony neighborhood that includes Angela Estate’s Oak Springs Vineyard and Domaine Serene’s Abbey Oaks Vineyard. Bryan Weil’s lots from this 38-acre site produced aromas of plum jam, poached cherries and black pepper with bright and fruity flavors akin to a raspberry tart and blueberry jelly.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 196 cases

Alcohol: 13.9%
