Illahe Vineyards Bon Sauvage Estate Pinot Noir
Harmony of ripeness, structure, elegance, and acidity
Country: United States
Appellation: Willamette Valley
Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
The 2018 Bon Sauvage explodes with fresh redwood, cedar and leather upon first taste. This wine was made as a barrel selection based on wines that best represented the 2018 vintage at Illahe. Firm savory tannins lead into a soft complex finish. Flavors of marionberry and pomegranate play with ponderosa notes as the wine opens up in your glass. Drinks great now, but has a strong structure and acidity to cellar for years to come.
