90 points ~ Wine Enthusiast “Clean, aromatic and varietally spot-on, this draws upon excellent raw material to craft a no-pretense, solidly built wine. Propelled by assured winemaking, with bare minimum of new oak barrels, this offers ripe blueberry and cherry, with a gentle touch of savory stems. Balanced with matching acidity, this fruit-driven wine may be enjoyed now and over the next five years.” ~ Paul Gregutt
Each vineyard parcel was harvested separately, at peak maturity and brought into the cellar cold. A blend of Pinot Noir from Chalice Estate Vineyard, Winter’s Hill Vineyard (11%) and Menefee Vineyard (8%), this wine showcases the quality and diversity of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. This is a versatile wine, which will pair well with a variety of foods. The fruit was gently destemmed, into stainless steel tanks and to 1.25 ton open top fermenters, to ferment as individual vineyard parcels. Once fermentation was complete, the tanks and fermenteres were pressed separately and then barrel aged. After aging through July the lots were blended together to build complexity.
