Critical Acclaim: 93 pts Vinous.
About the Winery: This winery is secluded in the wooded foothills of Oregon's coast range, within the McMinnville ava. They farm and partner with exceptional vineyards in Oregon to artisanally produce Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Riesling, Gruner Veltliner and Rosé. We strive to make wine in the vineyard, to produce distinctive wines with an authentic sense-of-place. To this end they age much of our wine in Oregon oak barrels (Quercus garryana) locally harvested, air-dried and coopered. Our wines are sought after for their graceful balance, textural complexity, expressive aromas and long-aging potential.
Winemaker Tasting Notes: Dusty earth and pronounced spice, wild herbs, bright cranberry and cherry—medium frame with vibrant freshness and length— resolved and integrated tannin structure—classic, cool-climate pinot noir.
Varietal: Pinot Noir.
