Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Black cherry, Raspberry, Cola, Spices
Big Table Farm is a real farm. Founded in 2006 on 70 acres in Oregon's Willamette Valley, owners Brian Marcy and Clare Carver raise animals and produce seasonal vegetables. You'll find free-range hens, pasture-raised pigs, goats, a team of draft horses, bee hives and grass-fed cows there. Oh, and they make some incredible wines.
Blending some of each of the 8 Pinot Noir vineyards they work with makes this wine a true representation of the 2018 vintage and the Willamette valley as a whole. This is a fuller bodied Pinot that combines polish with structure, offering delicate raspberry, spice and forest floor aromas. The fruit on the palate is juicy with flavors of red fruits, cedar, baking spice, black tea, vanilla, and cola. Very fine, smooth and silky mouthfeel, light tannins, and great acidity. The finish is long and opulent with both fruit and cola nuances. Pairs well with duck or veal.
