The fruit for this wine was sourced from our estate vineyards: Foley Family in the Dundee Hills AVA, Doe Ridge in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and Weathergage in the Van Duzer Corridor AVA; as well as select sites throughout the Willamette Valley AVA. Additional fruit from the Ribbon Ridge AVA make up the final blend.
Varietal composition: 100% Pinot Noir. Primary fermentation over a period of 12-14 days. It was then pressed and transferred to barrel where malolactic fermentation occurred naturally. Aged for 9 months in 15% new French oak.
The 2021 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir showcases a beautiful ruby hue in the glass. Pleasant aromas of black cherry, red raspberry and hints of baking spice and rich dark chocolate. The palate exudes bright red fruit flavors of cherry and raspberries which are complemented by generous, fine-grained tannins and a rich yet focused palate. The finish is bright with perfectly balanced acidity. True to the Willamette Valley, this is a chef’s wine that will pair well with a variety of dishes.
