Beaux Frères The Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

$89.99

Limited new release from Beaux-Freres. Wine Spectator #3 of 2016. The Beaux Freres vineyards are located on an 86-acre farm in Yamhill County's Willamette Valley. Majestic Douglas fir trees comprise just under 50 acres of the farm, with the homestead and barns occupying another six acres. The vineyard is situated on 30 acres of steep contiguous hillsides that enjoy an exceptional south/southwest exposure. The property, purchased in 1987 by Michael Etzel and the noted wine critic Robert M. Parker, Jr., was named Beaux Freres (the brothers-in-law). A few years later Robert Roy, a Pinot Noir and red burgundy enthusiast from Quebec, became the third member of the Beaux Freres partnership. A limited opportunity to try some of Oregon's highest rated Pinots!

Soft and splendid with rose and cinnamon on the nose. Jill wants this to be her perfume and it would make for a nice spring afternoon hammock cuddle. Has a darkness on the palate that I expect from Ribbon Ridge with cherries and baking spices.

Must wait must wait. So good, but still relatively primal.

Red currants, raspberries and wild herbs. Outstanding balance, great fruit and structure for aging.

I think this wine was a bit young. I am normally head over heels with all of Beaux Freres's wines. I think this one needed more time. It was still very good, but I was expecting more. The rich death and tobacco flavors were there, the fruit needed to develop.
