Winemaker Notes

Funky Jory is a love letter to the deep red Jory soil that defines the Dundee Hills growing region of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. A lighter body with flavors of forest floor, bright red fruit and a mysterious minerality make this a classically Oregon Pinot with a big nod to the Old World. The wine opens with complex aromatics of dried cherry, wild strawberry, damp earth, and a touch of baking spice aroma from the sparing use of new French oak barrels. The finish is silky and long, typical of Dundee Hills Pinot Noir.

Production Notes

The 2018 growing season began with a cool spring and moderate rainfall, followed by a long summer — one of the driest on record in the Willamette Valley. Luckily our vines in Dundee tolerate drought stress well and daytime temperatures weren't excessive, allowing us to pick our Pinot Noir at optimal ripeness.

Vineyard Notes

All the fruit for this wine comes from our estate vineyard in the Dundee Hills where our vines grow in — not surprisingly — red Jory soils. Rich in nutrients and high in clay content, this basalt-based volcanic soil produces Pinot Noirs with high acidity, softer tannins, and a red-fruit flavor profile.
