Smockshop Band Pinot Noir 'Spring Ephemeral' Columbia Valley 2016
Velvety, nuanced Pinot from Oregon’s Columbia Valley. Fruit grows on clay loam soils, with practicing organic and biodynamic practices put into place. 50% whole cluster fermented, followed by eight months of aging in neural oak. Silky on the palate, earthy and bright on the nose, and above all, insanely easy to drink.

Just southwest of Portland is some of the world's greatest Pinot Noir, planted in sedimentary soils left by the Missoula Floods, cooled by Pacific air sneaking through gaps in the Cascades.
