"Temperance Hill is a late-ripening organically farmed site in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. The grapes come from the older, self-rooted 'North' block which is believed to be Pommard clone as well as the ‘Pumphouse’ block. Cherry Grove Vineyard in the Coastal Range near Gaston is represented here with its deep and fruity 777 clone. Saikkonen Vineyard is a small site in the Ribbon Ridge AVA and is very expressive of the sedimentary soil on which it is planted. The Winter’s Hill fruit comes from an older self-rooted block of the Pommard clone. It lends a rich Red Hills character to the mix. Barnes Vineyard near Silverton in the foothills of the Cascade Range is farmed by Dan Kraemer and his son Ben. Sunset View Vineyard is the home vineyard of veteran vineyard manager Bob Bailey. Sited on a hillside in the Eola Hills, the grapes in this wine are from a baby block of 114 clone Pinot."
