Winery Notes - Initial aromas of chocolate, plum, and raspberry over clove, wet earth and barrel spice. Lush raspberry and blackberry flavors emerge on the palate, balanced by crisp acidity and age-worthy, fine-grained tannins. As with most classic cool vintages in Oregon, this wine is approachable in its youth, but will reward those patient enough to give it some time to age in the bottle.

Light in texture and weight, but shows real presence with its strawberry and cherry fruit, with cinnamon and talcum overtones. Finishes with refinement and grace. Drink now through 2019.

The 2009 Pinot Noir Estate displays a bit of heat along with notes of cinnamon, clove, cedar, black cherry, and black raspberry. In the glass it reveals denser fruit than the Willamette Valley cuvee, savory flavors, good balance, and a medium-long finish. It will deliver enjoyment through 2019.

Dark red. Dark berries, sassafras and anise on the fragrant nose. Plush, expansive black raspberry and cherry flavors pick up spiciness with air and show very good energy. The sweet, penetrating finish clings with spicy intensity.

Aromas of sour cherry, bergamot and plum give way to a clean, fresh burst of red cherry flavor. A dusting of talc-like mineral acidity keeps the wine bright and on point. Delicious as an aperitif, or with halibut.

Winemaker's Notes:

Black pepper, cloves, nutmeg, and anise open the bouquet, gradually giving way to raspberries, royal anne cherries, and orange zest. The palate opens with pure black cherries framed by bright, juicy acidity and fine grain tannins. The wines of 2009 are expressing their fruit early, but we believe this wine has the structure and acidity to age gracefully for 10-15 years.
