Winery Notes:
Vintage Overview:
Aromas of blueberry and sweet cream intertwine with lighter notes of thyme, rolled oats, and gravel. This bright and juicy Pinot Noir showcases delicate silty tannins and fig flesh texture. These textural components are joined by flavors of pomegranate, marjoram, and potting soil, which seamlessly transition through to the finish.

In the Vineyard:
In 2019, the Northern Willamette Valley saw a return to a more classic cool vintage. Spring was warm and damp with a late bud-break, while the growing season was moderate and steady. Early rains and a rapid October cool down created the need for strategic harvesting of fruit, which rewarded us with optimal ripeness and retention of acidity. From 2019 we may see one of the best vintages in the last two decades.

In The Winery:
Fermented in small lots, this Pinot Noir was separated by clone and block to enhance each unique characteristic found throughout the vineyard. After 11 months in barrel, this wine was blended to best represent the vineyard as a whole.
