    Winemaker's Notes:

    Willakia vineyard is located towards the northern end of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, which is located within the Willamette Valley, home to many of Oregon's finest Pinot Noir vineyards. During the growing season, ocean breezes push through the Van Duzer Corridor in the Coastal Range maintaining a consistently cool climate that is the hallmark of all great Pinot Noir winegrowing regions. This climate, combined with the shallow, well-drained volcanic soils of the Nekia series that dominate this area, are the primary reasons the Eola-Amity Hills AVA is emerging as one of the world's most exciting winegrowing regions.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is lovely, tempting the nose with violet-tinged currant and blackberry fruit, washing easily over the tongue with a graceful balance of fruit and spice, lingering effectively as the flavors hover. Drink now through 2014.

    The 2006 Pinot Noir Willakia Vineyard offers a deeper color, greater aromatic complexity, but essentially a similar personality. This smooth, seamless wine can be enjoyed over the next 4-6 years.
