About Belle Pente
Belle Pente, sits stunningly on a slope in the Willamette Valley’s Yamhill-Carlton district. Jill and Brian O’Donnell planted the first vineyard here in 1994, which now consists of 12 acres of Pinot Noir, two acres of both Pinot Gris and Chardonnay, and a few rows of Gamay Noir.

Vivid ruby-red. Cherry-cola and black raspberry aromas are complicated by notes of potpourri and musky herbs. Suave and seamless on the palate, offering sappy cherry and floral pastille flavors and notes of cola and tarragon. Gains weight with air and picks up a spicy nuance that carries carries through the long, clinging, sweet finish. I'd come back to this in about three years.
