Jovino Pinot Noir
This wine opens with sweet, ripe and forward high-toned notes of red and black fruits and barrel spices. The warm, soft mouth feel unfolds around flavors of red and black currants, blackberries and cherries — all wrapped in well-integrated ripe and rich tannins. A touch of light toast envelopes secondary flavors of spicy oak with fresh, mouth-watering acidity. The finish is supple and long on the palate with ripe tannins.
Color - Ruby garnet and what Pinot Noir should look like, not opaque
Aroma - Red licorice, barely ripe bing cherries, tart cherry candy
Mouth Feel - The uplifting acidity that makes Pinot Noir so enjoyable
Flavor - Reaffirms the aroma and adds a bit of black licorice
Finish - The body you expect from a fine Pinot Noir that lifts off your palate so elegantly
Jovino Pinot Gris
Excellent example of what Oregon’s finest cool climate white varietal and handcrafted wines can deliver. The nose waifs out of the glass with herbaciousness and fresh-cut green grass. The body is medium-plus with a slight perception of effervescence, making it clean and refreshing. Obvious ripe premium fruit source finishing with crisp acidity.
Color - Gorgeous star bright green gold
Aroma - Ripe Granny Smith apples and pears
Mouth Feel - Soft but crisp, medium bodied
Flavor - Silky green apples that refreshingly coat the mouth
Finish - Perfect balance of ripe fruit and crisp cleansing acidity
