|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
A mosaic of Pinot Noir from our estate, this wines is a mix of all our Pinot Noir clones. It saw mostly whole berry fermentation before aging, primarily in neutral French oak for almost a year. The aromatics are perfumed red fruits with undertones of earth and cola, and hints of baking spice. The palate soft and supple, with delicious baking spice flavors balanced by a delicate tension from the tannins - a classic representation of the Dundee Hills.
Compact and structured, with blueberry and cherry flavors laced with black tea and dusky spice notes, finishing with medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2029. 13,462 cases made.
From the Stoller Family estate, this young wine has some bite to the tannins, which put a sharp, slightly stemmy frame around the tight red and blue fruit. Blueberries and raspberries come with a strongly earthy component, and the tannins show the same phenolic mix of soil and stem. Look for further improvement over the next half decade.
