RESERVE PINOT GRIS
Our Reserve Pinot Gris represents the best of our hand-harvested fruit from our Five Mountain Vineyard, where we have old-vine Pinot Gris dating back to 1978! Planted in a high-density format, all our Pinot Gris undergoes shoot and crop thinning for low yields to maximize quality and concentration.
Laurelwood soil, Chehalem Mountains AVA
450-600 feet elevation. Best opened 2023-2026
Whole cluster pressed & cold fermented in small stainless steel tanks
Total case production: 192 cases
Sweetly perfumed with pear, honeysuckle, and sugar cookie on the nose, this full-bodied wine is lush, almost oily, and intensely fruit-forward. Peach cobbler and mandarin orange on the palate are complemented by a savory minerality and lime peel on the finish.
OLD SCHOOL PINOT NOIR
Lots of Pinot Noir are selected for this wine based on the ripeness of the stems. When ripe, stems impart spice and structure and intensify fruit-forward aromatics. For this wine, we included pinot noir from three vineyards: Clay Court 66%, La Boheme 22%, and Five Mountain 12%.
Willamette Valley AVA
Best opened 2023-2033
Barrel Treatment: 10 months in French oak
Total case production: 188 cases
Generously spiced on the nose with plum, vanilla bean, bergamot, star anise and violet, this spicy wine is balanced by loads of sweet blue fruit with pomegranate, pithy apple peel and notes of candied persimmon offering a foil to the rustic tannins and soft cedar finish.
