BENTON-LANE

In the late 1980’s Steve and Carol Girard, seduced by the Pinot Noir grape, left Napa Valley to pioneer the remote southern Willamette Valley. They found their perfect estate, a 145-acre sheep farm that was free from chemicals or prior plantings, and they knew this land was capable of growing silky, elegant and complex Pinot Noir. Today, Benton-Lane wines have received more top 100 Wines of the World than any other still wine producer in Oregon and Steve continues to farm his now-legendary estate using a blend of organic, biodynamic and sustainable practices.

2015 Benton-Lane Estate Pinot Noir 750ml

2015 was another fine, warm year with full ripeness in the fruit which allowed the fruit notes in the wine to be more black fruit driven (boysenberry, black cherry, blueberry and cassis) than red fruit (cherry, cranberry and raspberry). This brings more depth and concentration to the wine, along with a fine balance with all components getting along well with each other. This makes the wine a synergy and much more enjoyable. The wine is rich and deep with flavors of boysenberry, cassis and white pepper. On the finish is the sweet flavor of toasted oak from over-priced French wine barrels. This wine will wow when served with roast lamb.

2016 Benton-Lane Pinot Gris 750ml

At Benton-Lane, we take Pinot Gris seriously. Three of our Top 100 Wines of the World were for this loveable white wine. We slowly ferment the fresh whole cluster pressed juice to allow the release of the aromatic floral notes. 2016 was another warm vintage that gave us another crisp, easy to enjoy Gris. Once again the aroma is delicate honeysuckle blossoms. The flavor begins with honeydew melon and then develops into fresh key lime with hints of white peach. The wine has excellent natural acidity and is great with Asian spiced dishes, oysters, or by itself chilled on the river or lake.
