Winemaking Notes: This Pinot Noir is a blend from carefully selected vineyards in the Willamette Valley. All grapes are manually harvested at optimal ripeness level. The fruit is destemmed and placed into open top fermenters. A cold soak lasts 48 hours prior to initiating fermentation. Once fermentation begins, each open top tank is punched down two to three times per day. Once the wine is fermented dry, it is racked to barrels for completion of malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged 6 months in 100% French oak of which 20% is new.
Tasting Notes: This Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is deep garnet in color with complex aromas of raspberry, plum, and blackberry. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with dark fruit flavors and earthy spice notes. Integrated, round tannins linger on a long finish.
