The 2009 harvest was bountiful to say the least. Even after significant thinning the remaining clusters were the largest we have experienced in Oregon in 25 years. In 2009, the harvest of each vineyard designated Pinot was refined by cluster size. To quote Ken, "in order to ensure that the vineyard designated wines maintain their intensity, specific blocks or clones were set aside. The Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of these larger clustered blocks. Though not at the same level of complexity as the vineyard designates, this blend is extremely enjoyable, lush and full of pure, Pinot fruit.
Light and satiny, with modest tannins around a delicate core of cherry, raspberry and coffee flavors, fleshing out more on the long finish. Drink now through 2017. 4,500 cases made.
