SuNu Pinot Noir Blend 2018
WILLAMETTE VALLEY, OREGON
Fresh and vibrant, the 2018 SuNu is a brilliant ruby color, showing intense red fruit aromas of strawberry and bing cherry, offset by forest floor, baking spice and mandarin zest. The palate is elegant with an uncanny sense of concentration to the cranberry and passionfruit flavors that emerge. The tannins are silky, along with bright acidity, provide support to the long, building finish.

About the Winery:
A second label from highly-acclaimed Washington producers, Betz Family Winery. Twenty-two years ago, Betz Family Winery was founded with a basic tenet: search ceaselessly for the highest quality vineyard sites, pay attention to every detail in the vineyard, then give time in the cellar for slow evolution of each parcel’s unique characteristics. The French have a saying for this emphasis on vineyard as the primary engine of wine quality and character, “Sous Nous,” which means “under us.” We believe that the soul of our wine is not in the cellar…it’s under us in the jumbled mixture of soil and vine.
