Lenné Estate | 2014 Eleanor’s 114 Pinot Noir – Willamette Valley
If you’re a wine enthusiast or collector and don’t have any Lenné Estate Pinot Noir in your cellar, you may want to rethink that strategy.
Owner/wine maker Steve Lutz painstakingly burnishes small lot, artisan juice from his pristine Yamhill-Carlton estate in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
These wines reveal an intricacy, sultriness, and structure that only enhance over time.
