Annual ReleaseWe're thrilled to bring you the new vintage of Megan Anne Cellars!
"The 2018 vintage in the Willamette Valley marks the fifth year in a row where mother nature cooperated nicely. Akin to 2008, we had dryer than normal summer with no rain, which expedited ripening somewhat, as well as promoted good concentration and silky tannin development. Overall a truly winning combo, which will mark 2018 as one of the great vintages to collect." - Winemaker Isabelle Meunier
2018 Black LovePinot Noir
Sourced from top vineyards and sites in the Willamette Valley, Black Love is a 100% Pinot Noir blend selected from the best barrels available from the 2018 vintage. Mark & Megan began creating the Black Love label in 2006, named after an album by the Afghan Whigs.
Tasting Notes – a beautifully complex and aromatic
nose of dark chocolate, tea leaves, rich fruits and sweet tobacco sail into and
full-bodied palate of a tight core of dark fruits such as black plum and
blackberry. This wine has great breadth and length and is built to age
