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 red. High-pitched aromas of black raspberry, Asian spices and fresh rose. Juicy, penetrating and pure, offering vibrant red berry and bitter cherry flavors that gain flesh and weight with aeration. Darker fruit notes come up on the clinging finish, with its lingering floral and spicecake qualities. Very suave pinot, with the balance to age but plenty of upfront appeal as well.
