This wine for the everyday table is made entirely from Willamette Valley Pinot noir, aged in French oak barrels and blended for a delicious early release. This presumptuous nose of brambly blackberry notes, cinnamon stick, graham cracker and lavender is as intriguing as the palate which gives salted caramel, black tea and strawberry balsalmic notes. The generous fruit provides a silky middle and soft finish with lingering spicy tannins.

Wine EnthusiastPonzi's Tavola consistently out-performs reserve-level wines from elsewhere. Credit the outstanding vineyard sources, which include Ponzi's Avellana vineyard, and of course the skillful winemaking, which begins with native yeast fermentation. It was aged 11 months in 20% new French oak and has scents and flavors of Bourbon tea, cinnamon spice and black cherry fruit. There's plenty of power and a clean, fresh finish.

VinousBright magenta. Spice-tinged cherry, blackberry and a hint of woodsmoke on the pungent nose. Bright and energetic in the mouth, offering bitter cherry and boysenberry flavors that unfurl slowly as the wine opens up. Shows an appealing blend of depth and energy and finishes long and spicy, with displaying resonating berry character and just a hint of dusty tannins.
