From: Willamette Valley, OR
Varietal: Pinot Noir
The 2021 vintage is quickly gaining momentum as one of the best vintages ever for many winemakers in the Willamette Valley. June brought record-high temperatures across Oregon that were worrisome in the moment. Balance quickly returned for the rest of the Summer and by September returned to typical cool-climate temperatures. The cool night air allowed the grapes to finish ripening slowly, preserving bright acidity and balancing sugars.
This Willamette Valley Pinot Noir was very carefully sorted to ensure only the highest quality of fruit was used. The grapes underwent a two-day soak prior to fermentation for a total of 19 days of skin contact. 100% malolactic fermentation occurred over a five-month period. The wine was aged in stainless steel and finished in 20% new French oak for nine months.
Aromas of black cherry, sweet earthy notes, sage, and floral notes on the nose. The palate has notes of black currant, loads of spice, bramble, Marionberry, and lively tannins on the finish.
