A powerful Pinot Noir with abundant blue and black fruit, earthy spices and slight grip. Delicious now or lay it down for 5+ years.
Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Vineyard: Freedom Hill Vineyard
Location: Eola-Amity Hills, OR
Dark, elaborately pigmented with a wealth of fruit, generous mouthfeel and a dollop of tannins that gives the wine framework and dimension. While not a lightweight this is far from some bruising or sultry wine. This has intense red/black fruits, earthy spices and just a little bit of grip.
40% whole cluster fermented for 16 days, wine was allowed to settle 1-2 days before being racked to 8 barrels, 3 of which were Cadus while the rest of the barrels were neutral. Bottled unfined & unfiltered.
Since 2013 Freedom Hill Vineyard has been moving diligently and consistently from conventional farming practices to organic farming. The vineyard is located just south of the Van Duzer wind corridor which allows for more consistent average temperatures. This site has the capacity to produce some of the most extraordinary wine made in the state.
