"The 2010 Revana Vineyard Pinot Noir is an excellent representation of both the vintage and the Revana Vineyard site. 2010 was a challenging growing season, but with meticulous farming and masterful winemaking, our blend of eight different Pinot noir clones 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." - Winery
100% Pinot Noir aged for 9 months in French oak and 10 months in the bottles.
Alexana Winery was born of Dr. Madaiah Revana’s love of the great wines of Burgundy. In the spring of 2005, Dr. Revana began a search for both the ideal region and an experienced winemaker with the goal of producing Pinot Noirs that could rival those from Burgundy. His search ended in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where he met Lynn Penner-Ash. Alexana is named after Dr. Revana’s daughter, Alexandra.
The Revana Vineyard is located in the Dundee Hills appellation of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. This unique appellation is marked by distinct geographic elements that effectively insulate this region from the dramatic weather variations experienced in other nearby growing areas. True to the appellation, our 80-acre property possesses an incredibly diverse and complex series of soils and exposures. Located between 360 and 640 feet above sea level, the site has eighteen soil types spread over a combination of rolling hills, steep slopes and some rugged terrain.
