Production Notes
The 2016 vintage was defined by its early start, moderate temperatures and overall high quality. The season began with a warmer than average winter which led to an early spring and bud break. Temperatures remained warm yet moderate in the summer months, with no extreme heat spikes. These conditions allowed for even ripening, balanced vines and opulent flavor development. The fruit had smaller berry size and moderate yields, with harvest occurring from September 12th - September 24th, 2016.
Vineyard Notes
The Doe Ridge Estate, purchased and developed in 2005, is a 90-acre site and considered one of the most innovative new vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Sourced from Doe Ridge Estate Vineyard in Oregon’s Yamhill- Carlton District, this Pinot Noir benefits from vine age and sustainable farming.
