Wine maker notes
The fi rst vintage of this Pinot noir was in 1979. Our objective in producing this wine has always been a classic, intense and elegant wine that pairs well with the foods we like to eat. By blending the diverse flavors and textures of multiple vineyards, clones and elevations, we produce a richly supple and focused wine that typifies what Pinot noir can achieve each vintage in the northern Willamette Valley. With this wine, our 34th vintage, our experience shows - we’ve long been acknowledged as producing a reference standard for the “Oregon style.”

With its broad array of origins and clones, this wine displays red aromas (candied cherry, pomegranate and raspberry) on the nose and the palate. In addition, one finds a light touch of brown spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, all-spice). True to our house style, it is elegantly textured with seamlessly integrated, silky, polished tannins. Pair it with salmon or ahi, veal or pork, poultry (think duck) or beef, or hearty vegetarian entrees.

After hand-harvesting, the grapes were gently de-stemmed into open-top fermenters, followed by a four to six day cold soak for greater fl avor and color extraction. The grapes were then inoculated with a commercial yeast and punched down two or three times per day during their 7 day fermentation. After pressing, the wine was transferred into traditional small French oak barrels (24% new) where it was aged for approximately 10 months. The wine was bottled from July 31 to August 22, 2013
