The 2019 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of Pommard, Wadenswil, 777, 115 and two barrels of 943 clone pinot noir from Balanza Vineyard in the Dundee Hills (22%), Stewart Vineyard in Ribbon Ridge (23%), Winkler Vineyard in Yamhill-Carlton (23%), and Jubilee Vineyard and Greenwood Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills (32%).
The grapes were fermented in small lots using native yeasts with around 40% whole cluster then aged for twelve months in French oak (some neutral and several one-year-old barrels).
This wine has bright red fruit flavors paired with a soft, elegant texture and earthy, floral aromas. It will pair well with chicken, pork or salmon. Drink now or cellar for five or more years.
