Individual barrels are selected from the small-production ‘Single Vineyard’ Pinot Noir program with the intention of seamlessly bringing together 4 distinct ‘Terroirs’ to create a unique bottling of ‘Willamette Valley’ Pinot Noir.
Each vineyard block is fermented separately in small batches with native yeasts before resting in French oak barrels for 10 months. Each spring, Winemaker Bryan Weil selects individual barrels from each vineyard block to create a beautifully expressive and balanced version of ‘Willamette Valley’ Pinot Noir.
On the nose: this Pinot Noir offers spicy aromas with layers of cranberry, cherry cola and violet.
It is smooth and rounded on the palate with great acidity – displaying notes of red licorice, black cherry and roasted nuts followed by a lengthy finish.
