    ($75) Hazy medium red. Resinous, floral nose suggests deep raspberry, dried rose and pungent violet. Firm and dry in the mouth, with flavors of red berries and minerals. This is quite sweet but the finish is firmed by dusty, fine-grained tannins, giving an impression of elegance and poise.

The Beaux Freres estate property, an old pig farm, is 24 acres of tightly-spaced, low-yielding vines on the steep slopes of Ribbon Ridge in Northern Willamette Valley. Winemaking philosophy and technique follow a commitment to minimal intervention, with native yeast fermentations and only one racking prior to bottling. All the wines are unfined and unfiltered. The wine remains in French oak for a period of 10-12 months, in varying proportions of new wood depending on the strength of the vintage. Because of the "reductive" winemaking style, which keeps the wine away from oxygen as much as possible, Beaux Freres Pinots are made for bottle age. The end result is a true expression of prime Willamette terrior.
