LIB 2012 Isabel Pinot Noir

The warm summer days of 2012 were tempered each evening by cool marine breezes flowing over the Eola-Amity Hills via the Van Duzer Corridor, a low-point in Oregon’s Coast Range.  The resulting fruit was extraordinarily complex and developed into a wine with fruit-forward aromas and flavors balanced with soft tannins and bright acidity.


This barrel selection honor's Mark Bjornson's grandmother Isabel, who homesteaded on the plains of North Dakota, was a school teacher, wife, mother, renowned cook, and award-winning pie maker.  The proceeds from her three-acre vegetable garden saved the family farm during the Great Depression and paid college tuition for Mark's mother and uncle.



Tasting Notes from Andrea Fulton, Sommelier at The Joel Palmer House Restaurant:

Soft and deep nose of blueberry and dark red cherry.  While the sweet dark red and blue/black fruit explodes in the mouth, it is also carried by a backbone of soil and sun and place that defines the very nature of classic Pinot Noir.  The depth of flavor and rich acidity master the warm 2012 vintage resulting in a balanced and seductive wine with a lingering and satisfying finish.  Seafood in cream sauces or prime rib will shine with Isabel.  Beautiful now, and will age masterfully for five to ten years.
