"Dense and chewy, but remarkably agile, displaying ripe blackberry, plum, black pepper, walnut and floral flavors flitting in and out of focus, meeting up with mineral notes on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2020. 1,000 cases made. -HS"

Product Description:

"The wine has great structure, and the whole cluster addition has added tremendous spice to complement the black cherry fruit commonly found from Eola-Amity Hills AVA Pinot Noir. It has a rich round soft mouth feel.

The 2008 vintage is being hailed by many as Oregon’s best vintage to date. It was exceptional for us in multiple ways. All five of our estate vineyard Pinot noir clones are mature and producing amazing fruit: 114, 115, 667, 777, and Pommard. The crop was huge and we dropped fruit like mad and yet ended up with almost 3 tons per acre. The summer was exceptional to say the least. With the heavy yield the tannins were soft, fine grained and mature; shedding the youthful qualities the fruit had shown before. Harvest occurred the in mid October, taking advantage of the long summer. The brix ranged from 25.3-26.2 with TA’s hovering around 0.55." -Winery
