Sineann Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Resonance Vineyard 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

(Formerly known as Reed & Reynolds) This vineyard produces our best Pinot Noir - one of Oregon's best Pinot Noirs - every year. 2006 is no exception. The growers, Kevin and Carla Chambers, are fully biodynamic. The fruit off the oldest block of grapes was the best Pinot I've ever tasted off the vine. The wine is incredible: deep color, full, rich taste and a remarkable mouth-filling texture. I like to say our growers achieve the potential of their respective vineyards. Kevin exceeds his. The Reserve is a special selection of the oldest block of vines fermented in oak fermenters. As good as the "regular" Resonance is, this is even more concentrated with a remarkably persistent aftertaste.

We source our fruit from some of the best vineyards in the region; Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from the Willamette Valley and the Hood River Valley, Cabernet, Merlot and Zinfandel from the Columbia Valley, Gewurztraminer from the Columbia Gorge. We've started making wine from the Napa Valley. (We hear it is a world class winegrowing region.) We also make wine in New Zealand - Pinot Noir and Sauvi... Read more
We source our fruit from some of the best vineyards in the region; Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from the Willamette Valley and the Hood River Valley, Cabernet, Merlot and Zinfandel from the Columbia Valley, Gewurztraminer from the Columbia Gorge. We've started making wine from the Napa Valley. (We hear it is a world class winegrowing region.) We also make wine in New Zealand - Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. Making wine in only one hemisphere is so boring... Our growers have great pride in the grapes they provide us. Almost all our wines are vineyard designated. No expense is spared in our pursuit of great wine. Crop levels are kept very low, one to three tons per acre. Winemaking is meticulous. All fruit is hand sorted, delicately destemmed, punched down by hand, gently pressed and gravity racked. The wines are aged in new and one year old French oak. The bottom line is, we strive to make great wine. It's the only kind of wine that makes it onto our dinner table. It's exciting to make and gratifying to share. We believe that food and drink, lovingly prepared, make for happier and healthier people. Read less

Outstanding effort. Black cherry aromas and flavors, with nicely subtle smoky notes on the finish. Biodynamic vineyard.
