Pinot Noir

We're always pouring at least two vintages of Pinot Noir.  Because of Jason's "non-interventionist" wine-making philosophy, these wines change in dramatic ways from year to year.  

Right now, we have the 2011 Pinot Noir (medals from the SF Chronicle, Indy Int'l, NW Wine & Food)... an acid-driven Pinot with a strong, mineral core, red fruit notes, a wisp of vanilla and pepper.

Or sip on the 2012:  obviously a warmer year with darker fruit, Montmorency cherry with a long, beautiful finish.  Two and a half years in neutral, French oak.  Released 11/15.

Pinot Gris, Riesling, Pinot Blanc

It's the Willamette Valley, of course we have the full compliment of cool-climate white varietals.  All made dry.  All with a steely, mineral core.  The Gris' tend to orchard fruit notes while our Riesling and Blanc almost always lead with bright citrus flavors.

Say what, now???

We may be a small winery and vineyard, but we grow NINE (!!!) different varieties of wine grapes.  Crazy, right?  Like juicy, fruity reds?  Try our Gamay Noir.  Is a hefty, broad-shouldered red more your style?  Try our Cascadia red blend... a 50/50 combo of Pinot Noir and Marechel Foch.  

On the lighter side, we have a bright and fresh, off-dry Gewurztraminer, a white blend designed with seafood in mind called Pour la Mer and a dry Rosé of Pinot Noir that was barrel fermented, giving it a smokey flavor that pairs great with BBQ.
