J.K. Carriere is the independent project of famed Oregon vintner Jim Prosser, who earned his chops working for iconic Pinot Noir producers such as Erath, Chehalem, Villa Maria, and Domaine Drouhin before founding his own winery in 1999. His organically farmed Pinots continue to take the world by storm. This wine, which gets its name from the Latin word for 'wasp,' is medium bodied with dried rose petal, forest floor, and cherry aromas leading into dark cherry, pomegranate, and leather on the palate. Aged entirely in oak with 27% new French and the rest of varying ages, it underwent wild yeast fermentation and is unfined and unfiltered. We recommend a little decanting. 1337 cases produced. 92 Points Vinous.
