2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Regular price $30.00

Our 2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is most similar to our first vintage in that it is sourced from a single vineyard, in this case our estate vineyard, Luminous Hills in Yamhill-Carlton. A blend of sixteen barrels that were chosen from all the diverse elements of the vineyard – two soil types, a range of aspects, varying elevations, and four distinct clones matched to the terrain – with an emphasis on a wine that has early appeal, but which still reflects the complexity of the vintage, allowing for considerable aging potential. 2016 was a nearly perfect vintage in the Willamette Valley: good heat but not excessive, lighter and more open clusters from conditions at set, an early start and finish, and little unwelcome drama in the way of weather. As a result, flavors developed early in the season, allowing for an early harvest without sacrificing complexity or concentration and without excess sugar or loss of essential acidity. All this resulted in a wine that is generous, rich, complex, fruit-driven and layered, all while maintaining the balance, vibrancy and finesse that we prize in our Pinot Noir.
