Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has an elegantly intense fruit aroma, with an earth-driven backbone that reflects the terroir of the Willamette Valley. It was sourced from a number of excellent vineyard sites, primarily in the red Jory clay of the Dundee Hills AVA. The majority of the fruit (60%) is from the Bella Vida vineyard. The other Dundee Hills sites in this vintage are Abbey Ridge (10%), La Colina (5%) and Charlie's Vineyard (10%). There is also some fruit (15%) from the highly regarded Croft vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AV.
