Winemaker's Notes

Ruby in color with flavors of red berry fruits and spicy oak that meld on the palate. This is a blend of Feltz and Madrona Vineyards, both located on the eastern slope of the Eola Hills, where they have the advantage of recieving the early morning sunshine. This warms the vineyard early in the morning and contributes to a longer, more gradual ripening period.

Food and Wine Pairing: Try this Pinot Noir with Grilled Tuna and Eggplant Marmalade. Accent food pairings with ginger, thyme and fresh rosemary. One of our favorites is a Peppered Catfish and Couscous. This wine has good balance and can go with a wide variety of grilled or smoked foods such as duck or a roasted vegetable salad.

Alcohol: 14.0%
