A little something... for any palate!
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.
