100% Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley, Oregon
For over 7 years we have worked closely with fellow grape grower Jeff Havlin and his Fender’s Rest Vineyard to bring this blend to fruition. In addition to his lively antics and dry sarcasm, Jeff has provided us with grapes that display dark and rich characteristics while duplicitously showing bountiful natural acidity. Then in 2018, we began managing a small vineyard just down the road from our winery called
Stand Sure Vineyard; it brings a lighter earthier note to the table. We combine the spice, minerality, and structure of our Eola-Amity Hills Bryn Mawr estate to create the Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Each vineyard lies directly in the path of the Van Duzer Corridor, which funnels cold Pacific Ocean breezes into the Willamette Valley each day. Our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a fantastic expression of the typicity seen in our cool and breezy section of the Willamette Valley.
The 2019 Vintage was cool and temperate. The wines are distinctly bright and classically “Oregon” in style. These wines should age wonderfully and remain youthful and spirited for years to come.
Medium cranberry red in color. The nose is replete with sweet cherry and spice. Notes of cinnamon, anise, and licorice meld with fir tips and cedar bark on the nose. The palate starts soft with a burst of fruit sweetness, and then presents a fresh and juicy midpalate. The finish is balanced and refreshing.
