Tasting Notes

The term "Tall Poppy" is a begrudging compliment to someone that is head and shoulders above the rest.  This particular bottling is the 11th vintage of Tall Poppy produced in 38 years of Yamhill Valley Vineyards winemaking.  The 2016 vintage is comprised of several blocks of the Pommard clone from our estate. Savor this special, age-worthy wine as our finest representation of YVV terroir: rich, dense, structured, yet soft and complex.

Black cherry on the nose followed by a sweet/savory palate; forest floor, smoked meats, chocolate, spice, black currant, and Bing cherry round out a rich, velvety texture. 

  

Accolades

 90 points - James Suckling

“Medium garnet in color, this wine smells of forest floor and raspberries. In the mouth, beautifully silky flavors of raspberry and redcurrant have a wonderful lift and brightness thanks to excellent acidity. The faintest wisp of tannins lingers in the finish along with notes of dried herbs and pine duff. 9.0" - Alder Yarrow, Vinography
