A laudable glimpse of the Willamette Valley's finest offerings, our Reserve Pinot Noir is truly a celebration of balance. All three of our vineyards are based in volcanic, red soils, contributing to the sweet cherry, redheart plum, and toasted, rich, earth nose. The tannins are firm, but rounded, an underlying minerality which drives the mid-palate through the long finish. While delving for pure fruit flavors and juicy acidity, we hang our phenolic hat on our trademark silky texture, which has been enhanced through cold soaking in small, 1.5-ton fermenters, along with aging 16 months in French oak barrels.
Wine SpectatorFirm and refined, with baby powder-like tannins around the raspberry, strawberry, peach skin and hibiscus notes. Comes together harmoniously on a sleek and transparent frame, finishing long. Best from 2018 through 2024. 7,400 cases made.
