    Winemaker Notes

    Rich in plum and black currant flavors this is a medium bodied, barrel aged wine. Soft smooth tannins make it easy to enjoy. This grape is fast becoming Willamette Valley's other red grape.

    Airlie Winery, Willamette Valley, Oregon
    Airlie Winery, established in 1986, is dedicated to vintage-dated Oregon premium wines. Overlooking Dunn Forest Vineyard, the winery is located 20 miles northwest of Corvallis on the scenic coastal edge of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Great wines begin in the vineyard and the varieties of Pinot noir, Pinot gris, Chardonnay, Maréchal Foch, Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Müller-Thurgau are grown and produced.

    Willamette Valley

    One of Pinot Noir’s most successful New World outposts, the Willamette Valley is the largest and most important AVA in Oregon. With a Mediterranean climate moderated by a Pacific Ocean influence, it is perfect for cool-climate viticulture—warm and dry summers allow for steady, even ripening, and frost is rarely a risk during spring and winter.

    Mountain ranges bordering three sides of the valley, particularly the Chehalem Mountains, provide the option for higher-elevation, cooler vineyard sites. The three prominent soil types here create significant differences in wine styles between vineyards and sub-AVAs. The iron-rich, basalt-based Jory volcanic soils found commonly in the Dundee Hills are rich in clay and hold water well; the chalky, sedimentary soils of Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville encourage complex root systems as vines struggle to search for water and minerals. Silty, loess soils are found in the Chehalem Mountains.

    Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
