2015 Black Love Pinot Noir - Megan Anne Cellars

2015 Black Love

Pinot Noir


This barrel select blend of Chehalem and Dundee fruit is the undeniable showstopper.  The 60% new French oak is very well integrated bringing harmony and elegance to the bouquet of blackberry pie, dark cherry, mushrooms, soft cedar, nutmeg and vanilla.  The palate offers supple tannins with concentrated fruit flavors of cassis and plum laced with cocoa and exotic spices, while the acidity carries the slightest savory notes through to an opulent berry and earth finish.  This wine is stunning now and tantalizing with ideas of what a few years of cellaring would provide.

2015 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir - Megan Anne Cellars

2015 Dundee Hills

Pinot Noir


A beautifully pure garnet color draws you in to floral aromatics of rose and violet accompanied by blackberry, currant, dark soil and tarragon.  Rich flavors of blueberry and roasted plum gently unfold on the palate carried by lush, silky tannins.  The volcanic soils of this AVA and mature rootstock that is some of the oldest in the valley make for a gentle but structured mouthfeel containing further notes of  earl gray tea, dark cherry and baking spices.  The finish is long and silky giving hints to what this wine could become a few years down the road.

2015 Chehalem Mountain Pinot Noir - Megan Anne Cellars

2015 Chehalem Mountain

Pinot Noir


This is the most vibrant of the three 2015’s in true fashion of the cooler climate throughout this AVA.  Quite transparent with a reddish color and slight purple hues.  The aroma offers almost ripe strawberry and raspberry with earthy notes of dry leaves, when decanted further notes arise of new leather, slight orange peel and vanilla.  Moderate acidity opens the palate to bright, juicy cranberry with rhubarb and cherry, while lively tannins carry huckleberry through the lengthy finish.  Cellar it a few years for development that is sure to be impressive!
