Another fantastic Memoirs, this wine offers a wonderful introduction to one of Willamette Valley's top wineries. Beaming with black cherry and attractive spices, it shows subtle power, excellent freshness, and is a thoroughly engaging wine today that will also age nicely should you be able to resist drinking it over the coming months. - Marcus

2015 vintage notes
From Mo: "Memoirs is my fond personal tribute to my family. This year’s label features a picture of my mom Latifeh, to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of her passing. The 2015 Memoirs is a blend of Pinot Noir crafted from six select vineyards in the Dundee Hills & McMinnville AVAs.
The enticing nose is layered with spiced cherry pie, strawberry coulis, cinnamon and cigar box. Soft dark red fruit on the palate leading into a profound mouth-feel that layers your tongue with fruit, elegance and exotic spices. This expression of Pinot Noir is of its purest form, a blend of all vineyards showing all colors of my mother’s memories. This is a beautiful wine and my mom will be proud! Best from 2017 to 2025."
