For those familiar with the great Cabernet crafted from their Napa vineyard, this Pinot Noir does not need any intro. The wines are made by Oregon’s top winemaker Lynn Penner-Ash, who has garnered plenty of fame and accolades in her career. Lynn started her career at Stag’s Leap in the Napa Valley before settling in Oregon in 1988 as the winemaker for Rex Hill. In 2002 she started her own winery, Penner-Ash Wine Cellars. In 2005 Dr. Revana purchased the “Revana” Vineyard in the Dundee Hills and in 2006 they crafted the first Alexana.

The 2010 Revana Vineyard Pinot Noir is an excellent representation of both the vintage and the Revana Vineyard site. The 2010 vintage produced an intense, complex and balanced wine. Bright, forward aromas of black cherry, dried herbal and floral notes are lifted by molasses and anise blossom. Massive black cherry flavors are decadent and integrate well with spice, cola and cocoa tones. The texture is lush and rich, finishing with round soft tannins that provide perfect structure for cellaring.
Wine Spectator Insider gives this wine 94 Points:
“Tangy, focused and juicy, with blackberry, currant and subtle spice flavors, finishing with an open feel to the expressive finish. Shows impressive purity, clarity and length. Drink now through 2020. —H.S.”
