Winemaker Notes

The single vineyard Pinots are specific barrels or specific batches put together to be wonderful, distinctive Pinot Noirs. All the rest of the Pinot is blended into the Oregon. When it turns out as good as this year's Oregon Pinot, we are very happy. The grapes for this Pinot Noir came off several vineyards: Resonance (Pommard), Able (mix of clones), Yates Conwill (mix of clones), Wyeast (Pommard) and Schindler (a bunch of different clones). These are some of our favorite vineyards. We chose to blend strengths together and offer a less expensive, high quality wine.

The wine is aromatic with a mocha character, shows some barrel toast and has a long finish. 2007 was a "burgundian" growing season in the Willamette Valley. Acids are great. We concentrated the fermentation lots a bit by removing some of the juice at crush (saignee), freezing it and adding it back as concentrate. That raised what would have been 22 brix to 24 brix - full strength Pinot Noir. The wine should age for a very long time.

Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

The richness of the aroma belies the elegance of this outstanding Pinot Noir. Tightly woven scents of sweet herb, tobacco, clove, forest floor fungus and spicy red fruits provide an introduction to a wine that can only be called svelte. It's as smooth as silk in the mouth, loaded with flavor and polished to a warm glow, which is exactly what it leaves you with after just one sip.

Napa Valley

View all wine

One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production and tourism, the Napa Valley is the AVA that brought worldwide recognition to California winemaking. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard lands were scooped up and vines were planted throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, from large conglomerates to small boutiques to cult classics. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that lend even more character specifics to the wines. Furthest south is Carneros, followed by Yountville, Oakville & Rutherford. Above those two are St.-Helena and the valley's newest AVA, Calistoga. These areas are situated on the valley floor and are known for creating rich, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. There are a few mountain regions as well, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs. Those include Howell Mountain, Stags Leap District, and Mt. Veeder. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from more time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
