the latest in the growing lineup Dave Jepson’s of delectable wines from
Monmouth, Ore. — an unusual Port-style that starts with two barrels of
Pinot Noir from the acclaimed 2012 vintage, which are then infused with
locally grown and roasted filberts. Aromas of poached black cherry and
grilled strawberry lead to luscious flavors of black cherry and
strawberry. There’s just a hint of nuttiness in the sweet finish, and
the structure is beautiful with sandy tannins and integrated alcohol.
