"This is a forward, tasty, fruit-driven style, loaded with fresh strawberries and raspberries. It opens broadly across the palate, lightly dappled with suggestions of popcorn and grain. Not for the cellar, but definitely for the table, it should be at its drinking best during the next three or four years. "

TASTING NOTES Textbook Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with juicy, fresh fruit and berry flavors - think dark cherry, cranberry, blackberry, more cherry. Clove, mocha, blood orange and vanilla accents abound adding complexity. The texture is ripe and plush with a line of acid running through to keep the wine vibrant. The wine is all about focus, electricity, and verve.

View all from Averaen
AveraenAlways in pursuit of new expressions of terroir-driven Pinot Noir, our partners at Banshee Wines in Sonoma have ventured north to the Willamette Valley. It is here that they found many parallels to the characteristics that drive Sonoma's premier winegrowing, including cold Pacific winds drawn through gaps in the coastal mountain ranges, and unique combinations of marine sedimentary and volcanic soils.

In 2015, alongside their original winemaker Adam Smith (who, while in Oregon, has made wine at Shea, Domaine Serene, and Nicolas-Jay) they made their first vintage of AVERÆN. Smith's relationships in the Valley have quickly afforded AVERÆN privileged access to Oregon's highest quality fruit at prices reflected in the great value of this first release. Sourced from throughout the Willamette Valley, spanning such sub-appellations as Yamhill-Carlton and Eola-Amity Hills, AVERÆN was fermented and aged in a combination of stainless steel and neutral oak for 10 months.
