Willamette Valley & Umpqua Valley, Oregon. The soil is mostly volcanic origin with some alluvial deposits in the Willamette Valley.
We harvest our Pinot Noir grapes at about 22.5 Brix and then gently de-stem them before the maceration phase. Our macerations take about a week, to avoid harsh tannic flavors. The maceration ends with pressing and a
full malolactic fermentation. After a rough filtration, the
wine is put in contact with oak for at least 10 months.
Color: Medium ruby red.
Bouquet: Strawberry, rose hips and cranberry.
Taste: A harmonious nose with cranberries, nice coffee notes from slight oaking, some earthy character, a bit between the old and the new world in style. The wine has a gentle alcohol (12.6%). Completely dry and has light tannic structure with a streak of paprika on the finish.
Ideal with grilled salmon, duck, mushroom risotto and pork loin.
