Sweet, spicy black berry fruits are found in the nose of the medium-bodied 2003 Pinot Noir Carter Vineyard. Broad, pretty, and sensual, this wine is filled with delightful red as well as black cherries whose flavors linger well into its extensive finish. Drink this silky wine over the next 6 years.


Winemaker's Notes:

Located just 1 mile from Canary Hill in the Eola Hills, Carter Vineyard is lower on the hillside yet has a leaner and less fertile soil. It is mainly Nekia soil, which is formed from weathered basic rock. It lies at an elevation of 325' and was planted in 1983. This bottling is comprised of the Wadenswil, Dijon 777, Dijon 667, Dijon 115, and Pommard clones. The wine is firmer than Canary Hill in its youth but evolves beautifully after a few years in bottle to show black fruits and fresh, healthy earth scents. Approximately 650 cases are produced. The vineyard is owned by Jack and Kathleen Carter, and managed by Mark Gould.
