Lenné Pinot Noir longevity.
The difficult soils at Lenné create small, thick skinned berries which produce intense, flavorful wines with great longevity. The wines all have loads of fine grained tannins that help fight off oxidation.
While you can enjoy Oregon Pinot Noir young there is no way to enjoy great Oregon Pinot Noir without proper bottle age Our general guide for Oregon Pinot Noir is to wait at least a couple of years after they are realesed. Since most Oregon Pinot Noirs are released approximately two years after the vintage we recommend waiting until the 4 year after the vintage date to drink. The real magic doesn't happen until 6 to 8 years after the vintage when the wines start to reveal much more complexity aromatically and they make a textural shift to more richness as the acidity, tannin and alcohol start to integrate.
