Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) An inviting nose of warm blackberries laced with vanilla, baking spice and root beer engages the senses, leading to a plush mouthful of boysenberry, plum, graham and nougat. Smooth and seamless, each sip is a silky ribbon, woven together with refined tannins and judicious acidity

    Estate Selection is a blend of the finest vineyard sites from across the Willamette Valley. Vibrant aromas of spiced red plum and orange blossom highlight this outstanding vintage of reserve-quality Estate Selection Pinot Noir. Melt-in-your mouth chocolate, caramel and bright red fruit flavors, with a hint of dusky bay leaf, comprise a sweet confluence of taste sensations. Each sip is lively and mouth-filling, with perfectly balanced acidity offering a spicy, lingering finish

    (From 2006 Vintage) Bright, red-cherry fruit and suggestions of plums are juxtaposed with a deft bit of oak in both the aromas and flavors of this pert and mannerly young wine. More precise than potent and long on the palate, it is just a bit tight as Oregon Pinot is wont to be, but its unwavering focus on fruit makes for easy predictions of goods things several years hence.
