Winemaker Notes

The Kalita is the Michael Phelps of the line-up. The wine is consistent, impressive, powerful, and highly lauded. The 2010 has a black fruit profile accented by cola and spice and backed by well-placed tannins. Its expressiveness on the palate and long finish make it a crowd pleaser that we hope you will enjoy with filet mignon, beef bourgunoine, or short ribs accented with cocoa or coffee.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Supple, expressive and distinctive, balancing cherry, currant, anise and black pepper flavors that play easily against light, refined tannins. The finish lingers, offering a lift of acidity.

Et Fille, Yamhill-Carlton District, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Image of winery
Et Fille Wines is a small, family-run, Oregon winery specializing in Pinot Noir. Et Fille, which means "and daughter", honors the hand-in-hand, father and daughter team that makes these wines.

Oregon's Willamette Valley is comprised of American Viticultural Areas that represent different soil types and microclimates impacting the profile of wines from those sites. The wines are grown in four of Oregon's distinct viticultural areas, or wine regions. We have a small test vineyard on Parrett Mountain, but also manage long-term contracts for blocks at six vineyards located throughout the Willamette Valley. We think that this creates diversity between our single vineyard designate Pinot Noir and adds complexity to our Willamette Valley and Heredity blends of Pinot Noir.

Yamhill-Carlton District

View all wine

Yamhill-Carlton, characterized by pastoral, rolling hills composed of shallow, quick-draining, ancient marine soil, is ideal for Pinot noir and other cool-climate-loving varieties. It is in the rain shadow of the Coastal Range to its west, whose highest point climbs to an altitude of 3,500 feet. Yamhill-Carlton is actually surrounded by mountains on three sides: Chehalem Mountains to the north, the Dundee Hills to the east and the western Coastal Range to its west, which, when it lets Pacific air through, serves to cool the region.

Vineyards grow on the ridges surrounding the two small communities of Yamhill and Carlton and cover about 1,200 acres of this 60,000 acre region, which roughly makes a horse-shoe shape on a map.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
