Alcohol/vol 13.5%
The 2017 Willamette Valley is a pure and vibrant ruby in the glass, with aromatics of tart cherry and crushed strawberry, alongside hints of dried rose petal and lavender. The cool vintage reveals a wine which is lithe and ethereal on the palate, a bit shy in its youth, but with fine texture and tannin. A very pretty wine, already well-balanced and approachable. Seductive, with an elegant lightness that makes it very drinkable and enjoyable. From 2020 to 2025.

Deep, glistening red. Sexy, assertively perfumed aromas of fresh red fruits, potpourri and baking spices, with a hint of cola in the background. Juicy and focused on the palate, Jay's 2017 Pinot Noir offers vibrant raspberry, bitter cherry, blood orange and rose pastille flavors and a late jolt of spicy white pepper. Made in a fresh, exuberant style, with silky tannins sneaking in slowly to add shape and grip to the impressively long, spice-accented finish. Aged in 30% new oak.
