The Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has a light garnet hue, medium body and perfect Pinot Noir texture. Low alcohol (barely 13%) lends a satisfying buoyancy to go with its generous amount of acid. The general impression of the wine speaks to the vintage and the minimalist style that we employ in order to gain the maximum amount of transparency. As it represents all of our vineyards this wine combines the alluring combination of the earth and floral spice from volcanic Dundee Hills Jory soils as well as the dark fruited leanness of the sedimentary soils. Perfect for any occasion but certainly best with food! THIS WINE-> Pommard and Dijon Pinot Noir clones, volcanic/sedimentary rock soils, dry-farmed organic, 17-25-year-old vines, 15% new oak, barrel-aged 11 mos. 100% de-stemmed. NOTES: Silky strawberry, griottes cherry, & dark raspberry. Black cherry, blackberry pit, blueberry, & blue plum. Violet, poinsetta, ripe rhubarb, some thyme & oregano w/ a hint of mint. Whiffs of espresso & spice. Underlying mushroom & wet earth. Wonderful. Follows on the palate with a little orange peel to boot.
