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.

Bright red. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of red berry liqueur, potpourri and cola, with a smoky topnote. Broad, open-knit raspberry and cherry flavors show very good depth and energy, with tangy acidity adding spine. Richer and darker in profile on the long spice- and floral-accented finish. This wine benefits quite a bit from aeration.
