Colene Clemens "Adriane" Pinot Noir 2014
Willamette Valley, OR
93+ pts. WA: "Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Adriane has a meaty/broody character with notes of black raspberries, black cherries and red plums plus touches of violets, forest floor and Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied, this is firmly structured with a solid foundation of grainy, ripe tannins and racy acid supporting the muscular fruit, finishing long and earthy. It should age beautifully!" - Lisa Perrotti Brown, Wine Advocate
A truly beautiful Pinot Noir from the Chahalem Mtn. region of the Willamette Valley, Oregon! This wine has it all; perfectly balanced flavors of fruit, mineral, and spice. With a long, lingering finish, its complexity of flavors makes this Pinot very interesting without being overwhelming.
Named after Victoria’s daughter and Colene’s granddaughter, Adriane is an estate cuvée composed of specifically selected barrels that possess deep, concentrated flavors and a persistent finish. The aromas are focused and complex, with a range of red and dark red fruit and sweet spice. On the palate, there is an intense and linear core of sweet fruit, and compact, balanced layers of flavor, that crescendo in a long finish. Age-worthy and well balanced, Adriane is structured to gain complexity and interest over the next eight to twelve years safely tucked away in your cellar.
Our earliest vintage to date, we harvested between September 15th and October 5th. The fruit was 100% de-stemmed into small stainless steel tanks and begins with a 4-5 day cold soak. Following this, tanks are gently warmed, and fermentation by indigenous yeast begins and proceeds for 10-14 days. During primary fermentation, the tanks are gently punched down by hand twice daily. Once fermentation is complete, we allow for 5-7 days of extended maceration in tank before we drain the tanks and press the skins, stems, and seeds very gently to procure the remaining juice. Both the free run juice and pressed juice then go directly to barrel without settling. After 11 months in French oak—33% new; 33% 1-year old; 34% 2-year old—the wine is then blended and bottled.
