Wine should not be regarded simply as a beverage, but as an art of living, a pleasure.” – Henri Jayer

Welcome to The Hedonistic Taster, a binNotes | redThread™ trade sampling of artisan wines.

Lenné Estate | 2014 Jill’s 115 Pinot Noir – Willamette Valley

Lenné Estate wines equal many Burgundy wines in their structure, finesse, and intentionality. Lenné Estate’s 2014 Jill’s 115 Pinot Noir is one such wine.
