Winemaker's Notes

This wine is currently the only single vineyard bottling made at Oak Knoll. Beginning in 1997, select barrels of wine from Five Mountains Vineyard were kept separate and bottled with the vineyard name. 1998 marked the seventh consecutive vintage in which the winery purchased the entire crop. Yields were right on target at two tons per acre. The small berries and small clusters possessed intense color and flavors. Look for this wine to be an outstanding cellar candidate with a minimum of ten years aging potential. Quality is definitely the hallmark of this extraordinary Pinot Noir site.
