The PInot noir grapes for this wine were grown at an elevation between 600-95o feet, on east to south-east-facing slopes in Willamette Valley’s Dundee Hills. The vintage started off slow but gained speed as the weather improved. Then frequent rain events in June and July delayed ripening progress. As September unfolded, even more rain fell! However, difficult vintages like this one often result in lovely, food-friendly wines– and this Pinot is no exception to that rule.

Medium-bodied with silky tannins, this Pinot noir is rather elegant and polished, perfect for a wide variety of dishes.
