Dark and layered, this Pinot Noir’s bright acidity and fine tannins make for a broody but delicate wine.

Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Vineyards: St. Dolores Estate, Temperance Hill Vineyard
Location: Willamette Valley, OR
Alcohol: 13.5%
Production: 1337 cases

Medium garnet color. Full roses, ripe resinous cherry, caramel, pepper spice and mossy forest laden the nose. After a few minutes it’s almost coffee/toffee in its dark linearity. In the mouth, the wine is elegant and intense dark cherry/pomegranate, short of sweet and shy of bitter. The acidity sings vibrantly, yet just a brush of tannin lays it balanced on the palate. 

6 to 8 barrel lot, wild yeast fermentations in stainless steel, 100% barrel aged for 17 months; 27% new, 15% one-year-old, 17% two-year-old, 41% three-year-old or older. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Flagship bottling representing two great vineyards; St. Dolores Estate and Temperance Hill.
