Grapes from the Temperance Hill Vineyard are some of the most sought-after fruit in the Willamette Valley! The vineyard is located smack-dab in the path of the Van Duzer Corridor winds so, in the warmer months of the growing season, the grapes enjoy cool Pacific Ocean breezes, also known as nature’s air conditioning, each afternoon. Due to these daily weather events, the individual grapes develop thicker skins– increasing their skin to juice ratio– while also retaining more of their natural acidity.

Brooks purchases fruit from vineyard blocks that were planted in 1981 and are made up of Pinot noir clones 777 (40%), Pommard (31%) and Wädenswil (29%). Once the hand-picked Pinot noir grapes arrived at the Brooks Winery, they were hand-sorted and destemmed before spending 18 months in French oak barrels. The resulting wine has abundant tannin and earthy notes with black fruit aromas and flavors.

Bouquet:

Blackberries // plums // earthy // black raspberries // sandalwood // black cherries

Palate:

Plums // blackberries // freshly-tilled black soil // sandalwood // prominent tannins // black raspberries

Food pairing suggestions:

Mushroom Wellington with rosemary and hazelnuts // quinoa and salmon winter salad // roast pork loin with potatoes and herbs
