2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
The 2016 crop level was quite low. We averaged just above two tons per acre. This is mostly due to the very small berry size of the vintage. Small berries give us greater intensity of color, aroma and texture. 2016 is a magnificent vintage that combines density with balance and immediate appeal. Our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a snapshot representation of most of our single vineyard Pinot Noir sites. It expresses floral and spice notes from our marine sedimentary sites and fruit focused qualities from our volcanic sites.
Aged in 100% French oak barrels for about 1 year.
