Klee Pinot Noir 2016
Heady aromas of cedar, mushroom, earth and black cherry emerge from the glass. On the palate, the fruit-driven wine shows soft tannins and flavors of dark cherry compote, strawberry leather, stewed plums and rose oil. The finish lingers with bright acid to complete the taste experience. Chris suggests pairing this wine with coq au vin but says that it could pair with many dishes; this is the ultimate food wine
In homage to one of winemaker/owner Chris Berg’s favorite artists, Klee is named for the famous Bauhaus artist Paul Klee. The artwork on the label is an adaptation of a Klee painting called Solution “ee”. of the Birthday Assignment, 1924. The fruit for this Pinot Noir comes from a mix of vineyards, including Roots, Saffron Fields, LeRoy and 49 Rows. All sites are located in the Northern Willamette Valley and range in age from 1971 to 2007. Most of the soils in these vineyards are silty loam with various percentages of sandy loam underlying.
