(534 cases; bottled at 13.5%) Upper register red berry fruit notes are nuanced by hints of wild raspberry, briar and a subtle hint of wood spice that serve to introduce supple, stylish and elegant middle weight flavors that possess good detail and fine balance on the dusty, linear and precise finish. There is fine intensity here and this will clearly require a few years before the tannins mollify sufficiently to allow this to reach its full potential. Lovely and there is plenty of underlying tension here.

About This Producer

Recognized as one of the top producers in the Pacific Northwest, St. Innocent focuses primarily on vineyard-designated Pinot Noir, with Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc rounding out the portfolio. The winery was founded in 1988 by winemaker and president Mark Vlossak with the intent of producing terroir-specific bottlings that "complement and extend the pleasure of a meal." 2007 marked the first vintage for St, Innocent in a new gravity-flow winery, and just a year prior the first vineyard land was purchased, a portion of the Zenith Vineyard in Eola-Amity Hills. Total production is 6,800 cases.
