Alcohol/vol 13.5%
This wine with a bright garnet color reveals a delicate and complex nose of raspberry, wild strawberry and cherry flavors accented by black peppers and hints of cinnamon. The vintage and the vineyard site offers a sleek and pure expression of red fruits and minerality from the gold basalt in conjunction with a well-built and harmonious structure. Pairs well with lightly seasoned red meats, chicken, turkey, lamb and root vegetables.

This is the best release to date from the sister vineyard to Résonance, which gives Maison Jadot's Oregon project its moniker. Lightly peppery red fruits are here in abundance, buoyed with crystalline acids that leave a lick of lemon meringue along with a hint of cedar, from 15 months in French oak. Give this some extra aeration and let it show you its best.

Bright magenta. Sexy, smoke-tinged aromas of red and dark berry preserves, candied flowers and cola, plus a hint of incense in the background. Sappy, sweet and focused on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry, cherry cola and rose pastille flavors that tighten up steadily on the back half. This suave, approachable, gently tannic Pinot finishes with very good clarity and length, leaving vanilla and allspice notes behind. (aged in 30% new French oak for 15 months)

Precise and tightly focused, but with a spirited core of minerality wrapped in densely layered cherry, slate and smoky green peppercorn flavors. Best from 2020 through 2025. 500 cases made.
