By on April 10, 2016

et-fille-heredity-pinot-noirThe French phrase “et fille” translates to “and daughter,” which describes the concept at this North Willamette Valley project of Howard Mozeico and his daughter, Jessica. Heredity signifies the best barrels in their winery, and skilled hands develop aromas of dark strawberry, dusty raspberry and black currant. Blueberry juice and pomegranate begin to describe the lithe structure of the mouth feel, which opens with tangy acidity and balanced tannins, creating a long finish that will marry well with Cornish game hen or duck in a cherry reduction sauce. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
