Wine Library:

Grab the vineyard manager from Domaine Drouhin, then take a winemaker who turned out the #3 Wine of the Year from the Wine Spectator in 2015 ... and you're off to the races. That's exactly the story at Lazy River Vineyard. This fantastic Willamette Valley Pinot delivers with bright cherry and raspberry flavors, a medium to full bodied mouthfeel and a tremendous finish. Outstanding.

Product Description:

"Our 2011 in wine parlance is 'coming around.' It was a cool year. For a while tannins and acids dominated the bottles. However, slowly and surely its familiar basic Lazy River character moves forward. It has a long finish, black currant, a certain meatiness, a bit of smoke and of course, the ever present cherry.

Lazy River's first vintage of Pinot Noir was 2002. In 2003, it produced a Famille Neuville Reserve, highly rated by Allen Meadows of Burghound. The Reserve was included as a featured wine at the International Pinot Noir Celebration. That wine was found to be elegant, high-lighted with cherry and berry flavors, balanced with a smoothness that begins on the front of the tongue and flows through the whole swallow, layered and complex - still characteristics of our wine. Later tasting notes included hints of coffee, tobacco or earth." - Winery
