Adelsheim Pinot Noir Elizabeth's Reserve 2015

Product description

Take home Willamette Valley history in a bottle. 2015 will be the capstone vintage of our iconic Elizabeth's Reserve Pinot noir. For nearly four decades the "Lizzie" has helped define the celebrated terroir of Willamette Valley Pinot noir. For this final vintage, Winemaker Gina Hennen, selected fruit from 13 of Willamette Valley's most exceptional vineyards throughout the Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, and Eola-Amity Hills. This collectible vintage shows notes of blueberry, lavender, and delicate spice, flowing into the voluminous yet refined palate. Its elegant structure will develop gracefully as you age this special vintage for years to come.

92 Points - Wine & Spirits    Adelsheim’s reserve bottling, this leads with dark spice and crushed-herb notes. It’s complex and elegant, with tannins that cinch the roasted-plum fruit the way a belt gathers the fabric of a dress. For something forthright, like lamb chops dusted with dukkah.

90 Points - Wine Spectator    Refined and well-knit, with elegantly layered cherry, green tea and cardamom flavors that linger toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2024.
