"Trent Moffett moved his California winery to Oregon in 2014, to focus principally on Pinot Noir. Working with consulting winemaker Drew Voit, he has released four single-vineyard examples from 2016, each nicely balanced and displaying a sophisticated hand at the helm. Coffee, cherry and toast combine here, in a polished effort using fruit from the Monk's Gate vineyard. Given 10 months in 30% new French oak, it's young and sassy and delicious already. -PG"
When it comes to Moffet wines, one of the top cuvees is their Monk's Gate VIneyard Pinot Noir. This extremely tiny vineyard in the Willamette Valley is home to some of the most sought after grapes in the region. While most goes into Monk's Gate wines, they do allow a tiny bit of the crop to go to Moffet wines. This is one of the smallest production wines we have done so far and we are super excited to bring it to you!
Up front there is a big smack of red cherries, eucalyptus, and strawberry jam. You get the terroir and the earth in the mid palate and the finish. You could drink this now if you would like, but the acidity and depth allow the wine to age. This is a wine you can revisit over the next 5 to 10 years! Remember there are just a handful of cases produced, it is an extremely rare and exciting wine!
