Winemaker Notes

The wine presents intriguing and complex aromas, which combine black fruit with perfumed floral tones, fennel, spice and cedar. By contrast, the flavors tend at first toward brighter red fruits like raspberry and cherry that become sweeter through the pleasingly long finish which carries a hint of toastiness. Juicy and satisfying, the 2007 Pierre Léon will be an extremely versatile food companion, complementing such foods as steak in a wine reduction sauce, grilled tuna, or pork chop with mashed potatoes, grilled Portobello mushrooms and roasted vegetables. It will improve for the next two to three years and age well for eight to 10 years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Pinot Noir Pierre Leon Estate spent 14 months in 50% new oak and is made up of mainly of Dijon clones. Rounder, riper, and weightier than the preceding wines, it displays lots of spice on both the nose and palate, cherry and raspberry flavors, and a sense of elegance. This nicely balanced, lengthy effort will offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2019.

WillaKenzie Estate, Oregon
WillaKenzie Estate Winery Video

WillaKenzie Estate is located in Oregon's Willamette Valley on rolling hillsides in the Chehalem Mountains. The winery was named after the Willakenzie soil on which the vineyards are planted to convey the influence that the soil imparts on the wine's flavors and aromas. The vineyards are planted with grapes of the Pinot family, mostly new Dijon clones of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from Alsace. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are cool climate grapes, which are particularly well adapted to Oregon. As winemaker for WillaKenzie Estate, the acclaimed producer of single-vineyard Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris, Erik Kramer leads all winemaking and cellar

operations. He has been working in Oregon’s Willamette Valley since 2004, where he has built a reputation for world-class wines of finesse and balance. A scientist by training, Erik worked as a hydrogeologist in the petrochemical industry before combining his passion for science and appreciation for fine wine into a career. He spent a few seasons in Washington as a harvest cellar worker before

pursuing a postgraduate diploma in viticulture & oenology at Lincoln University in New Zealand, where he graduated with honors. Kramer went on to craft wine in New Zealand before to moving to the Willamette Valley. Prior to joining WillaKenzie Estate, Erik crafted highly-regarded wines for Domaine Serene and Adelsheim Vineyard. He also holds a degree in geology from Florida State University, which he draws on today when considering the relationship between terroir and wine quality. When not at the winery, Erik enjoys spending time with his family at his wine country home in McMinnville

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half, organically. While the valley claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both character and grace.
