Anam Cara Cellars Nicholas Estate Pinot Noir 2011

Chehalem Mountain , Willamette Valley, Oregon, United StatesTheir flagship wine, Nicholas Estate reflects 5 blocks in Chehalem Mountains, and 5 different clones of pinot noir, resulting in the layered nuances of this finessed wine. Elegant and lifted floral notes, delicate raspberry, cherry skin and bright plum float over a lean, stony edge of acidity (here's the cool 2011 vintage showing) and finish with faint rosebuds and spiced tea leaves.
