Umpqua Valley, Oregon, 2018 (750 ml)


Bench Lands is 100% pinot noir utilizing fruit from several different vineyards, all growing along benches of the Umpqua River.  The wine has a lovely deep shimmering burgundy color. The aromas arising from the glass show bright bing cherry, some ripe plums with a pleasant spice note from our French oak elevage. In the mouth some tart cranberry and blueberry notes compliment the other fruit flavors along with a tingly delightful richness. The finish is long and persistent, with all of the components lingering upon your palate. 

Brandborg, Benchlands Pinot Noir
