Our Barrel Select Pinot noir is our most diverse and complex blend of 100 percent Pinot noir from our Estate Vineyard, and multiple vineyard sites throughout four of the now seven nested AVAs in the Willamette Valley. Our winemaking team “tunes” and “tweaks” various trial blends comprised of percentage-wise mixes from over 100 barrels hand-picked from our cellar before arriving at each year’s decision for the Barrel Select blend.Our intent with this wine is to craft a modestly-priced, excellent Pinot noir that is expressive of Oregon’s Willamette Valley

Winemaker Notes

by Shannon Gustafson
With ample rain and snowpack, 2017 was more of a return to normal with budbreak occurring closer to mid-April.Followed up by record heat in both July and August, we worried that we would have another early harvest. Fortunately,early September brought cooler temperatures which allowed us to more evenly paceour picks from September 25thto October 17th. Our Pinot Noir vineyard sources all came in ataverages of23.2Brix, 3.42pH, and 5.7TA.
