2008 Iris Pinot Noir Reserve
"Brilliant garnet in color, this wine displays aromas of ripe blackberries, marionberries and hints of ripe plums with a pleasant background of mushrooms and toasted oak. The entry is smooth and velvety, with generous offerings of ripe berry fruit, perfectly balanced acidity and beautifully integrated sweet oak spice. The luscious ripe berry flavors expand in a long, full finish framed with fine velvety tannins." - Winery
"Iris Vineyards wines are all hand crafted from grapes grown in our Chalice Vineyard located in the foothills of the Coastal Range, south of Eugene, Oregon. We also utilize grapes purchased from a few carefully selected Oregon vineyards known for growing wine grapes of exceptional quality."
"Our goal is to capture the finest elements of the grapes by gentle handling, skillful artisan processing, and patiently waiting until the wines are truly ready to enjoy before their release. Our wines are unique expressions of the vineyards from which they come; caressed by the winemaker's art into distinctive creations we hope will bring pleasure to all who drink them." - Winery
