Winemaker's Notes:

This is Cooper Mountain's signature Pinot Gris from what is shaping up to be one of the finest vintages the Willamette Valley has seen. This Reserve Pinot Gris is 100% stainless steel fermented and shows tones of mineral, peach, pear, apricot. A rich and balanced wine.
My Notes:

About Cooper Mountain:

At Cooper Mountain Vineyards, we are dedicated to the concept of 100% estate grown and produced wines. We began growing grapes in our vineyards in 1978 on a south facing slope of Cooper Mountain, an extinct volcano site overlooking the Tualatin Valley and notable for its unique and shallow soils. All of the decisions relating to the final quality of the wine are under our control. We determine pruning technique and crop level, when to begin harvest, and how to process, ferment and age our wines. Over the years we have been able to develop an intimacy with the different sections of our vineyards and an understanding of how our wines develop in the cellar and in the bottle. This understanding comes from working exclusively with our estate grown grapes and helps us to capture the essence of this very special terroir.
