Winemaker's Notes

This wine is Oregon Pinot Noir at its best. Enticing, vibrant, dark ruby-purple in color, it presents ripe pomegranate and cranberry on the palate, laced by an earthy spiciness. Ageing for over 10 months in 30% new French oak has contributed a softness to the mouthfeel without masking the lovely red to black fruit characteristics of premium Dundee Hills Pinot Noirs. The velvet texture, balanced acidity, vibrant freshness, integrated tannins and long, elegant finish are each signatures of this spectacular estate vineyard. The meticulously-maintained Black Family Vineyard is located in Oregon's acclaimed Dundee Hills AVA. Pinot Noir was planted in two stages with Pommard and Wadensvill in 1990, and Dijon clones 114, 115 and 777 two years later. Vine age and sustainable farming, combined with average yields of no more than 2 tons per acre, are producing the best fruit to date from this 110-acre property.

"This wine has an earthy core that supports smoky oak. The fruit also has an almost carob-like flavor, the earthy tannins gripping enough for pork loin." 88 Points
