Maison Roy et Fils Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Domaine Roy et Fils
United States - Oregon - Willamette Valley

Aromatically this is the most floral wine Maison Roy made in 2017. It is a hypothetical blend of the floral aromatics of the 2013 vintage and the depth of the fruit on the palate of the 2016 vintage. It shows violets, rose, lavender and rosemary on the nose. The palate is silky and accessible due to the better than average vintage conditions. This wine should age well for 6-8 years or longer.
