Nuanced aromas of dried cherries, rose petals and earth set the tone. Juicy wild strawberry and cherry coat the palate with notes of sage. The finish is silky and long, a classic characteristic of Dundee Hills Pinot Noir. 

 

Winemaker Notes

Nuanced aromas of dried cherries, rose petals and earth set the tone. Juicy wild strawberry and cherry coat the palate with notes of sage highlighted in the background. The use of new French oak barrels in this wine supports the fruit and adds a touch of baking spice aroma where the contribution of older French oak barrels allows the tannins to develop gracefully over time. The finish is silky and long, which is a characteristic of Dundee Hills Pinot Noir.

Production Notes

The 2018 vintage started with a relatively mild spring with average rain fall. The most remarkable aspect of the growing season was the long and dry summer, one of the driest summers on record in the Willamette Valley. Fortunately, although we were drier than normal, daytime temperatures weren't excessive and our vines in the Dundee Hills AVA tolerate drought stress well.
