2010 Beaux Freres, Willamette Valley Pinot Noir-
Bright ruby. Bright raspberry and mulberry scents are complemented by exotic cinnamon, mace and candied rose. Juicy, focused and appealingly sweet, with potent, floral-accented red berry flavors and a suave, silky texture. The tangy, tightly focused finish shows impressive clarity and length. -91pts-

Our vines have started to flower!
Flowering is one of many crucial times for the vine. During this time we will determine the fruit set for the 2012 vintage. In the next couple of weeks we will be watching the tiny clusters as they move through this stage.
