Planted across from the winery in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, Stermer Vineyard has been farmed organically since being planted in 1997. With Willakenzie marine sedimentary soils composed of a thin layer of silty-clay loam atop sandstone, the wines from this site are often full-bodied with prominent cherry, spice and earth notes. The nose of the 2015 Stermer shows lavender, strawberries, and black cherry, accented by deeper anise, peppercorn and cinnamon notes. The palate is medium bodied, textured and round. The finish is long and marked by sweet fruit and cocoa flavors.

Dusty spices, cocoa powder and graham cracker accents open into a lush palate packed with baking spices. Roughly half new French oak was used, and given the extra years of bottle age, this is perched right at the apex of its prime drinking window. Lemon peel, chocolate, cinnamon and a touch of peppercorn all annotate the pretty raspberry and cherry fruit.

(52% new oak) Dark red. Bright and energetic on the nose, displaying fresh red and dark berry, floral pastille and peppery spice qualities and a smoky mineral topnote. Incisive raspberry and bitter cherry flavors become sweeter as the wine stretches out. In a graceful style, revealing no rough edges and showing very good tension on the long, floral-tinged finish.

Expressive and floral raspberry and orange peel aromas open to tightly layered cherry and spiced tea flavors that take on momentum toward big but refined tannins. Best from 2020 through 2024. 484 cases made.

Pale ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Stermer Vineyard has notes of warm cranberries, rose petals and dusty earth with a raspberry tart undercurrent. Medium to full-bodied, it has a lovely backbone of freshness textured by chewy tannins, finishing with good expression and length.
