Winemaker Notes

Presenting our benchmark style of sensual aromas, elegant intensity and depth, the wine is layered with black fruit flavors, hints of spice, followed by a long finish...it is crafted to be delicious at release and we're confident it will continue to mature and bring pleasure for many years.

A beautiful warm, dry summer with mild fall temperatures brought the fruit to perfect ripeness. Full maturity came with rather high brix. The 1999 vintage had very small yields, resulting in wines of intense flavor and complexity. Pinot noir grapes were selected and hand picked from Madrona & Abetina Vineyards, (all Ponzi owned & managed properties) and blended with Durant and Linda Vista Vineyards. Yields were 1- 1.5 T/acre. All of the fruit was hand-sorted for quality.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-brick in color, the 2000 Pinot Noir Reserve gives notes of sandalwood, new leather, dried herbs and spice box over a core of dried mulberries, figs and kirsch. Medium-bodied and elegantly played on the palate, it offers tons of perfume, spices and a chewy backbone, finishing long and lively.

Willamette Valley, Oregon

The Chehalem Mountains is a northwest-southeast span of several distinct mountains, ridges and peaks in the northern part of the Willamette Valley. Of all of Willamette Valley's smaller AVAs, it is closest to the city of Portland. Its highest summit, Bald Peak at an elevation of 1,633 feet, serves to generate cooler air for the rest of the AVA and its hillside vineyards. The region covers 70,000 acres but only 1,600 acres are planted to vines; soils of the Chehalem Mountains are a mix of basalt, ocean sediment and loess.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
