2014 Beaux Freres Pinot Noir Willamette Valley..$57.99
Our Willamette Valley cuvée features fruit grown on select vineyard sites in the Northern Willamette Valley. The sites are farmed sustainably and managed to very low yields. We age the wine in the same French oak barrels used in our estate bottling, however the percentage of new oak is intentionally lower. This wine is not fined or filtered. This wine consists of fruit from the following vineyards: Gran Moraine 34%, Zena Crown 21%, Willakia 20%, Upper Terrace 10%, Roserock 6%, Hyland 3%, Saikkonen 3%.
2013 Beaux Freres Pinot Noir Zena Crown...$71.99
Supple, velvety and generous, layering blackberry, plum, licorice, pepper and floral flavors into an open-textured finish that lets the flavors keep singing harmoniously. Best from 2017 through 2023. 213 cases made.
Rated 92/100 Wine Spectator
2013 Beaux Freres Pinot Noir The Upper Terrace...$85.99
Intensely and seductively aromatic, billowing purple plum, blueberry, blackberry and espresso notes that resolve on the velvety palate. The tension between the fruity and savory character persists into the long and vivid finish. Drink now through 2023. 366 cases made.
