2021 Megan Anne Black Love
100% Pinot Noir The first release since 2019, we are thrilled to reintroduce the Megan Anne Black Love. A rich, full-bodied expression of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir made for the Mark Ryan fan. On the nose, aromas of graphite, tea, and dark plum are joined by flavors of ripe black and blue fruits and cacao. Integrated tannins lead to a long fruit-filled finish.

Black Love is a selection of our favorite barrels of Pinot Noir from top Willamette Valley vineyards. A blend of three clones balance lush dark fruits with earthy aromatics and age-worthy structure. Throughout the Willamette Valley, the growing season of 2021 is considered an outstanding vintage, both in terms of balanced yields and quality of fruit. Grapes were picked from September 15th to October 4th in beautiful weather conditions. We harvested exceptional fruit that created beautifully balanced flavors and silky textures in the wines.
