2021 Rivoli Pinot Noir
Rivoli is a club exclusive bottling from La Belle Promenade Vineyard. Rivoli has long been an iconic Parisian street infused with art, history, and bustling life; an ideal promenade in which the Flâneur can feel one's most self. With a sip of Rivoli, we invite you to imagine where you feel most like the Flâneur.
Violets, Oregon bramble, blueberry, and Marionberry exude freshness from first splash. Flavors mirror the aromas with a touch of mossy forest floor and sanguine. Plush and round, with integrated tannins from 60% whole cluster inclusion creates a velvety texture that we absolutely love. The finish is long, vibrant and carried by wild bramble fruits.
100% La Belle Promenade Vineyard | Chehalem Mountains AVA | 700 - 800’ Elevation | Northeastern & Southwestern Exposure | Volcanic Soils, Jory & Nekia | Planted to Mixed Pinot Noir Clones | La Belle Promenade Vineyard is planted to 36 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Grüner Veltliner and Aligoté. It sits on top of volcanic soils, with the western portion of the site consisting of a thick layer of fractured basalt. Due in part to its high elevation, this site allows for great diversity in concert with our other estate vineyard, Flanerie.

94 Points, Wine Spectator: "Fragrant and silky, with well-sculpted cherry and raspberry flavors that gather rose petal, spiced nutmeg and savory tea accents. Closes out with refined tannins. Drink now through 2031. 405 cases made." - Tim Fish
