Auteur Pinot Noir Mcminnville Hyland Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of freshly ground pink peppercorn, wild raspberry and blueberry preserve, rose petal and asian spice with high tones of crushed wet stone and lavender. Deep and brooding with an intense core of floral scented currant and black cherry flavors charmed with lively acidity. Resonate tannins are nicely defined with a long, penetrating spice finish.

Our Philosophy Our winemaking philosophy is to maintain the DUALISM between the varietal’s MASCULINE AND FEMININE CHARACTER. To achieve this depth, we select vineyards situated in COOL MICROCLIMATES of Oregon and California while focusing exclusively on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Our vineyard designate wines ripen slowly through cool moderate temperatures maximizing the fruit’s personality and allows the feminine lively upper notes of floral, mineral and spice to fold into the masculine core of a deep fruit. The Winemaking History Winemaker and owner, Kenneth Juhasz, conditioned his winemaking background by working on several projects in the cool climates of Oregon's Willamette Valley, Sonoma's Russian River and Carneros regions, as well as New Zealand's Central Otago. He pilots the wines through balance, fruit ripeness, structure with acidity and encourages vintage variation as part of the intrigue and appreciation of his wines. Kenneth and his wife and partner Laura bring the philosophy that maintaining the dualism between the varietal's masculine and feminine personalities is what makes exceptional wine. The Label The French word for "author;" named in appreciation of, each wine being the result of a unique creative vision. The deep orange color represents our adventurous spirit combined with the organic nature of winemaking. Read less
